This multifunctional hardware component is designed to deliver black and white laser technology in the areas of printing, faxing, copying, and scanning. It is based on the same multifunctional technology as that found in the MFC-8820D. It makes use of the Universal Serial Bus interface port in order to achieve higher data transmission speeds and make the processing of printing, copying, scanning, and faxing faster. This multifunctional hardware component also makes use of double sided printing operations as supported by the appropriate device driver. This feature is useful of maximizing print media as well as providing additional functionality for the computer user. Essentially the device driver communicates with either the host operating system environment protocol or the installed software application. The actual routine is dependent on the underlying operating system platform that is used by the host computer system. The device driver is likewise partly responsible for the sharing of the functionalities to other computer systems.
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 device driver of the Brother MFC-8820J USB Printer can also be used to extend the scope of coverage delivered to the supported hardware component. This means that the device driver can be used to generate third party support for otherwise inherently unsupported operating system platforms. What this means is that even if the underlying operating system environment is not covered by the manufacturer the Brother MFC-8820J USB Printer can still be hosted. These types of device drivers however may not be completely recognized by the manufacturer. Another potential drawback from these types of device drivers is that not all feature sets may work properly. Normally the printing process can be deployed without a hitch but as for the scanning and faxing there may be some problems encountered. In the manufacturer supported operating system environments no such problems have been cited as long as the appropriate device driver is installed. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother MFC-8820J USB Printer errors before installing any driver updates.
