There is NOT a driver, so you can't download it. That's not supported by Sharp or even by the Openprinting.org foundation, who rates a similar model as a "Paperweight".

That said, there's a good chance that printer could be set up as just a generic Postscript printer...have you tried ANY drivers at all?
