This printing hardware component connects directly to the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host computer system. This means that its presence is covered by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system platforms. This also translates to a higher data transmission rate that can be achieved by the printing device. The deployment of the device driver is normally accompanied by a number of smaller software applications, tools, and utilities. All of these products are intended to enhance and extend the printing capabilities of the Canon PIXMA iP5000 device. Taking this into consideration, when the proper device driver is successfully loaded into the host computer system the computer user will not only be able to print images but also organize them into corresponding albums. The device driver will ensure that the host computer system, the underlying operating system environment, and the installed software applications will be able to successfully communicate with the supported hardware component.
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
The device driver of the Canon PIXMA iP5000 also allows the computer user to successfully print Web pages as well as make customized labels for Compact Discs. The device driver also makes it possible for the computer user to perform a number of maintenance and troubleshooting actions. The device driver is partly responsible for allowing the computer user to successfully align the printer heads from a software interface. This action will ensure not only that the print out maintains a high degree of quality but also helps to remove any clogs in the printer nozzles. This functionality becomes quite handy in the sense that the computer user does not need to physically clean or align the printer heads. The software interface which makes this action possible is also put in place during the installation process of the device driver. Normally the computer user can invoke this software based interface from the control panel applet of the host operating system platform. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon PIXMA iP5000 errors before installing any driver updates.
