The CANON DR-9080C is considered as a high speed scanning hardware primarily because of its SCSI and USB interfaces. The Small Computer System Interface and the Universal Serial Bus are two communication ports of a computer system known for their high speed data transfer rates. One of the roles of the device driver is to accurately detect which communication port is being used by the scanning hardware. The importance of this process is highlighted by the fact that the CANON DR-9080C hardware device is responsible for providing the communication infrastructure to be used for the data exchange between the hardware and the software components of the host machine. By supporting high speed data transfer rates the device driver also supports the protocols which accompany these communication ports in terms of maintaining data integrity and security. For older computer systems an additional driver for the appropriate interface port may be required.
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
Because the CANON DR-9080C supports both grayscale and colored scanning processes, the computer user must have the ability to select the appropriate scanning method to implement. The selection process is made available via a software interface that also serves as the control panel applet of the CANON DR-9080C device. When implementing the scanning process the computer user also has the ability to specify the resolution to be used. For this particular scanning hardware, resolutions vary from 200 by 200 to 600 by 600 dots per inch for grayscale. When it comes to colored scanning process the resolutions can be set from 100 by 100 to a maximum of 600 by 600 dots per inch with a maximum size equal to an A4 paper. The device driver for the CANON DR-9080C makes it possible not only to save the scanned image but also to apply post processing procedures on it. The edited image may be saved into another format depending on the capability of the editing software. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CANON DR-9080C SCSI errors before installing any driver updates.
