Updated: Apr 27

To scan documents to a folder on your Mac using a Sharp MX copier, you first need to ensure the Sharp Copier driver is installed and set up correctly on your Mac. Follow the steps below for driver installation, printer setup, and scan-to-folder setup:

Step 1: Download the Sharp Copier Driver

  1. Visit the drivers tab on Select your copier model, and it will redirect you to Sharp's official driver website.

  2. To find your Mac's operating system, click the Apple icon in the top-left corner and select "About This Mac." Note your operating system version and choose the corresponding option on the driver download page.

  3. Click "Download" to save the driver file. Remember where it's saved for the installation process.

Step 2: Install the Sharp Driver on Your Mac

  1. Open the downloaded file. Navigate to the yellow folder, then click "Install."

  2. Click "Continue" and "Agree" to proceed with the installation.

  3. Click "Install." You might be prompted to enter your system password.

  4. Once installation is complete, click "Close" and move the installer to the trash.

Step 3: Add the Sharp Printer to Your Mac

  1. Open System Settings on your Mac.

  2. Select "Printers & Scanners" and click the + (plus) button to add a new printer.

  3. If your printer is on the same network, it should appear in the list. Select it from the list.

  4. Under "Use," ensure you select the correct printer driver (the name of the driver you installed).

  5. Click "Add" to complete the setup.

Step 4: Set Up Scan to Folder on Your Mac

  1. Create a shared folder on your Mac. Right-click in Finder, select "New Folder," and name it appropriately (e.g., "Scanned Documents").

  2. Right-click the folder and select "Get Info." Under "Sharing & Permissions," ensure the folder is shared and permissions are set to "Read & Write."

  3. Go to the Sharp copier's settings and navigate to the scan-to-folder setup section. Follow the user manual to input the network path to the shared folder on your Mac.

  4. Set up user authentication if required. This might include providing your Mac username and password for access to the shared folder.

  5. Test the scan-to-folder functionality by scanning a document from the Sharp copier to your shared folder.
