We have been having problems with our Sharp, but we have been able to connect all of our macs to it no problem. Sharp has drivers that do detect OS versions. It may be that you need to download the specific drivers for each version of Mac OS you operate with. We use 10.6.2 and the only function we cannot use is the scanner. The Sharp MFP sends a file that the Mac just can't figure out. When downloading drivers from the Sharp website many of the models do not show up. Rather than select one yourself the last option on the list is "Model Not Listed". This allows you to enter the exact model you have. The only thing is you will have to do this for each computer that uses a different OS. Once you download and extract the driver (just click on it and follow the instructions) the mac should allow you to set the drivers.

Our problems are getting the scan function to actually send the scanned item to the mac and when we print pdfs that are black text the Sharp prints it as a composite color. They come out bronze and it is costing a bundle to print them. We gave up using it as a printer until Sharp can figure out how to stop this. No luck on either items so far. Any ideas out there?
