The 3.3 Mega Pixels DSC is an imaging device which when plugged into the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host computer system can function as a mass storage device. This setup is achieved by installing the correct device driver associated with the supported hardware component. Basically the USB Mass Storage Device class is used to define a set of services that adhere to specific computing communication protocols. Before the introduction of the Microsoft Windows 95 Operating System platform there was no built-in support for the Universal Serial Bus interface port. This led to very limited usage primarily because of the lack of supporting software application for the hardware devices in this class. The generic device driver support was introduced with the release of the Microsoft Windows 2000 Operating System edition and was further improved in the Microsoft Windows ME Operating System platform. This allowed for better connection and communication between the supported hardware component and the host computer system.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Since USB Mass Storage Devices mainly make use of the FAT file system because of its simplicity and wide spread compatibility, it sometimes is used as a carrier of computer virus. Because of this threat the device driver also allows security applications complete access to the supported hardware component. In newer security applications automatic scanning procedures are implemented once a mass storage device is detected on the Universal Serial Bus interface port. Essentially DSC USB Mass Storage Devices are associated with digital cameras which have built-in memory modules and expansion slots for memory cards. When plugged into the host computer system there is a possibility that two new drives can be detected by the underlying operating system. The two additional storage media represent the internal memory and the expansion slot memory of the hosted hardware component. The device driver helps the underlying operating system environment to correctly distinguish between the two storage media. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 3.3 Mega Pixels DSC USB Mass Storage Device for Windows ME errors before installing any driver updates.
