I have windows 7 operating system on my computer. I own a Sharp AJ-5030 all in one. How do I make my all in one compatable with my computer

You can try the Sharp web site and see if they have support for this model under Windows 7. However, I do not see it listed on the Microsoft compatability site.

There is a work-around if you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. Download and install the XP mode from Microsoft. Install the all-in-one inside the virtual computer. Files may need to be saved to external media to be transferred between the two "machines"

I hope this helps.

I am trying to install a Sharp AM 900 printer fax scanner on our new computer for the rescue squad but windows 7 will not recognize the driver on the disk

After reviewing the owners manual for this printer I see it is an older model. But not to worry! While most of the time I find the driver database on Windows 7 is considerable, it is sometimes lacking some of the older equipment drivers. In these rare instances, it is possible to simply explore the CD and find the installation file. It should be an EXE or MSI file, sometimes called "setup". It should have the Sharp logo for an icon also. I wish I could be more specific but the contents of each driver CD varies quite a bit.
Anyway, once you locate the location of the installation exe file, right click on it and select properties. Then select compatibility. Next, you want to select "Run this program in compatibility mode for..." and select Windows XP SP 3. You may also want to select "Run as administrator", since it will be interacting with the internal workings of your OS. See graphic below to illustrate what i am talking about.


Good Luck,

My printer is not printing and give error message like ''communication error''. Is it because the cable is too long? I am using 10 ft now

Cable length has nothing to do with it. It may even be on the computer side as corrupt driver installation etc. Make sure the cable connections are correct. uninstall the device from the device manager and reinstall.
