The Canon BJC-265SP is a printing hardware component which connects to the printer port of the host computer system to deliver printing solutions for installed software applications. The printer port of the host machine is essentially a type of communication port where data transfer is implemented. The role of the device driver is this context is to deliver the necessary infrastructure that will ensure that the communication interface is constantly available. This printer port receives the processed information sent forward by the software application requesting the printing task. The instructions are then forwarded by the communication port to the printing hardware for appropriate implementation.
