The hardware driver for the Canon BJC-5100 printing device supports the implementation of a proprietary protocol. This means that it is almost impossible to use it as the basis for the generation of third party developed device drivers intended for operating system environments not inherently supported by the hardware. The device driver allows for the implementation of its designed colored printing based on the inkjet technology. It allows for the computer user to specify the printing resolution which is at 1440 by 720 dots per inch based on the manufacturer's specifications. The manufacturer provided hardware driver is intended to activate all basic and advanced capabilities built into the printing device. Some of these features include configuration for high quality printing, faster processing time, built-in troubleshooting tool, and direct access to the manufacturer's website among others. The device driver also makes the built-in maintenance tools available to the computer user.
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
Installation of the correct device driver will ensure that the host computer system meets the necessary requirements to allow the Canon BJC-5100 to operate correctly. The main concern of the device driver is usually towards the available system memory and free hard drive space that it can occupy to implement printing needs. Upon connection to the host computer system of the printing hardware the underlying operating system will prompt for the installation of the manufacturer provided device driver. Upon completion of the process every software application installed in the host computer system gains the functionality to create a hard copy of the processed data via the printing hardware. The device driver is also used to monitor all data that passes through the communication port occupied by the hardware. The hardware driver will also make sure that the printing jobs are correctly queued to eliminate the possibility of request collisions. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon BJC-5100 errors before installing any driver updates.
