The Brother HL-730 series belongs to a group of printing hardware components that are covered by in-box device drivers. These types of device drivers are incorporated into the operating system environment but may not have the capability to make the supported hardware component fully functional. The presence of these drivers would depend on the current version of the underlying operating system being executed by the host computer system. When equipped with the correct device driver the Brother HL-730 series allows the host computer system to accurately detect its presence and allows the installed software programs to send printing commands and instructions. Like in majority of printing devices from this manufacturer that operates under the Microsoft Windows Operating System platform the interaction between the software application and the printing device passes through the execution of the Graphical Device Interface protocol. This protocol becomes primarily responsible for communicating with the device driver of the attached 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 manufacturer normally designs the device driver based on the currently available operating systems in the computer industry. In case that a new operating system environment comes into the mainstream the manufacturer may release a patch to the device driver to provide support for the newer technology. The device driver of the Brother HL-730 series may be deployed in this manner or may be adopted by third party developers in order to produce their own versions to support newer technologies. Third party software developments may or may not be recognized by the manufacturer but must be based on an Open Source implementation of the official device driver codes. The device driver of the Brother HL-730 series may also be used to provide support for the newer Linux Operating System platform using generic instruction codes for PDQ, LPD, and CUPS among others. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother HL-730 series errors before installing any driver updates.
