The Brother MFC9180 is equipped with the functionality of printing, scanning, copying, and faxing either as a standalone device or attached to a host computer system. The device driver is designed to activate all of these feature sets in order to make them available not only to the underlying operating system environment but also to the installed software applications in the host machine. Depending on the type of operating system platform installed the device driver may communicate directly with the installed software application or may interact with the printing protocols like the Graphical Device Interface. The printing and other functionalities of the Brother MFC9180 is supported by a built-in 8 MB memory module which allows it to handle more tasks simultaneously. This hardware component does not only supported the Universal Serial Bus interface port but also that of the IEEE 1284 or the Parallel communication port.
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 scanning, copying, and faxing operations supported by this hardware component also benefits from the printing routine. Essentially the computer user can specify a colored scanning process using either a 600 by 2400 dots per inch resolution (for optical scanning) or a 9600 by 9600 dots per inch interpolated resolution. The device driver provides support for 256 grayscale levels which maintaining compliance with the TWAIN specifications. Bundled with the device driver are software applications which allows the computer user to preview scanned documents as well as apply some post processing effects. The bundled software applications can also be used to implement Optical Character Recognition technology. This allows the contents of the scanned document to be edited directly from within a standard word processing program. The computer user also has the option of storing, editing, or sending out the resulting image from the scanning process. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother MFC9180 USB Scanner errors before installing any driver updates.
