A device which incorporates printing, copying, and scanning functionality into one hardware component, the Brother DCP-167C Printer requires the presence of a manufacturer provided device driver to become fully functional. The correct device driver allows the underlying operating system environment to take advantage of all the functionalities built into the device. The same device driver allows the installed software applications to invoke any of the feature sets provided by the Brother DCP-167C Printer hardware component. This means that with the correct device driver the computer user has the flexibility of activating the printing, scanning, or copying feature of the hardware component from within the software application environment. The device driver also allows the computer user to modify the default configuration of the device from either within the program environment or from a control panel applet. This functionality extends to almost all feature sets of the supported hardware component.
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 printing engine of the Brother DCP-167C Printer is considered as a colored Inkjet which means that printouts are produced using ink droplets. The scanning method on the other hand makes use of the CIS process. The copying feature is basically the same as the scanning but instead of outputting the document as a software file it is printed on paper. The device driver allows for faster printing processes based on the presence of its 32 MB built-in memory module dedicated to handle all printing requests sent from the host computer system. The Brother DCP-167C Printer connects to the host computer system using the Universal Serial Bus interface port version 2.0. The cable connector length must not exceed six feet to allow for effective communication and data transmission. The communication link established and supported by the device driver serves as a two-way process transmission between the printing hardware component and the host computer system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother DCP-167C Printer errors before installing any driver updates.
