The device driver for the Canon iR5070-iR6570-S1 PCL5e is used to implement the 5e version of the Printer Command Language. This translates to the implementation of bi-directional communication features in the printer hardware. Unlike traditional printing processes which normally involved the requesting software application to send instructions to the device without any feedback, this technology allows the printing hardware to talk back to the host operating system. By installing the appropriate hardware driver it is possible for the implementation of various tools and utilities which are designed to alert the computer user on the status not only of the printing job but also of the hardware itself. The device driver sends the computer user notification messages when the printing job begins and ends as well as when the hardware is low in ink or paper. This technology also provides for a better troubleshooting mechanism for optimal printer hardware operation.
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
Traditionally device drivers for printers were meant to make the hardware operational rather than functional due to the limited feature sets of the hardware. Older printing devices were manufactured solely to deliver printing solutions unlike newer hardware components which are multifunctional. Couple this fact with the advancements in technology, the printer driver for the Canon iR5070-iR6570-S1 PCL5e is designed by its manufacturer to make the hardware both operational and functional. It is still used to provide the host operating system with the necessary information on the make, model, and manufacturer of the device including the current version of the device driver that will be installed. All these data will be processed by the host machine and stored in the registry database to be available to all software applications. The device driver is likewise used to keep track of the file components that are being extracted into the computer system which are related to the operation of the printer hardware. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon iR5070-iR6570-S1 PCL5e errors before installing any driver updates.
