Usually before any type of printing hardware can be used on the host computer system the corresponding device driver must be installed. The device driver instructs the host computer system what type of hardware component was attached to its communication port. The printer device driver also provides the computer user with a number of ways to control the different settings like paper type or printing quality among others. The computer user is given a software interface wherein these various printer settings can be manipulated. The correct printer device driver also makes sure that the values provided by the computer user is within the limitations of the supported hardware component based on the manufacturer's specifications. This is very important because it helps to prevent printing errors as well as ensure that the best possible print quality can be achieved. The printer driver then communicates the defined settings to the host computer system and the supported hardware component. This holds true for the Canon BJC-4200SP and its associated device driver.
