Sharp's Vista Driver does not install

Downloaded AL-1551CS Vista Driver. With USB unconnected, ran install to success. Did not ask for USB, but I plugged in to try to print and Vista started the new hardware wizard as if no install had been done. Wizard could not find the driver.

    Have downloaded the AL1551CS driver from SHARPUSA, it goes through the process of installing, then it asks to re-start the computer; but it never installs the driver, I'm able to see the devices; but it is missing the driver therefore it does not run. What a headache with VIsta and Sharp for that matter !

    I've downloaded the Drivers from Sharpusa for the AL-1551CS, and I the same thing happens as above - Nothing. It goes through the instal process, never asks me to restart, never asks me to re-plug the cable, and it acts as if the software was never installed. After donloading, when windows vista detects the new hardware, the correct file path is already displayed (C:\Drivers . . .) but it states, "No drivers are located at this location, yet this is exactly where the drivers are stored.

    I have the original install disk, but my disk drive is broken, and I doubt it supports windows vista. Anways, one of the "read me" pages mentioned something about changing my current inkjet printer port during installation of the AL-1551CS. But, I'm not sure what that means or if it would help or not. ???

I had to add a printer manually after going through the driver installation process. Add printer,next,local printer (do not check plug and play),next,create new tcp/ip port, next, type in the printer ip address, next, I used the Generic network card here and it worked fine for me. You can figure it out from here

Sharp AL 1551cs reading L

I also have an AL-1551CS copier...normally the "L" has something to do with the scanner lock device underneath the left side of the top part (ie; the scanner) It's clear colored and round with protrusion to turn it from locked to unlocked...this is for moving the copier so the scanner (lamp and mirror assm) won't be disturbed. Use a flashlight or such to inspect the position of said device (ie; locked or unlocked) insure it is unlocked.....power back on and tell me if there is a number following the "L" Tim
