This hardware component combines the functionality of a colored printer, scanner, and copier into a single device. It makes use of a device driver which is capable of simultaneously activating all feature sets built into the supported hardware component. The device driver is likewise responsible for implementing proprietary technologies like the PictBridge and Photo Capture Center among others. The Brother DCP-163C Printer normally connects to the host computer system using the Universal Serial Bus interface port. This communication port provides the link which hosts the data transmissions to and from the attached hardware component. The device driver is partly responsible for maintaining the integrity of this communication interface based on the prevailing protocols of the underlying operating system environment. The Brother DCP-163C Printer is also manufactured with a 32 MB built-in memory module dedicated to printing process handling. The device driver supports a maximum printing resolution of 1200 by 6000 dots per inch.
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
The Brother DCP-163C Printer can also host a number of media card types like Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, and xD Picture Card TypeM+ among others. These media cards allows the computer user to store image files and other similar data into a removable device. The device driver also supports the execution of a scan to card process that automatically places image files into the media card. The device driver supports the JPEG image format for all scanned document files. The device driver also makes it possible for the computer user to read and write into the media card. Since the device driver implements the PictBridge technology it remains compatible with all imaging products that are compliant to this standard. The maximum optical scanning resolution that can be supported by the Brother DCP-163C Printer and its corresponding device driver is set at 1200 by 2400 dots per inch.
