The Canon S100SP is a Universal Serial Bus based printing device which allows for the direct connection to a host computer system on the corresponding communication port. It is supported by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system platforms but is not covered by any generic device driver. This means that despite being automatically detected the proper device driver must still be installed to make it operational and functional. Since it makes use of the Universal Serial Bus interface port the device driver must support the existing protocols deployed by the operating system environment for that specific communication port. This will ensure that the supported hardware component and the corresponding host computer system will be able to successfully maintain constant communication. This will allow for a higher completion rate for all print jobs and better handling of printer queues. The Canon S100SP will also be able to successfully send alerts and notifications to the host computer system.
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
Designed as a personal printer with a compact housing it makes use of the proprietary Drop Modulation Technology. This technology which is supported by the device driver makes it possible for the Canon S100SP to implement a maximum printing resolution of 720 by 360 dots per inch. By activating the Drop Modulation Technology the nozzles embedded in the print head can successfully produce two distinct sizes of ink droplets. This results not only in a faster but also higher quality print out. The device driver also allows for a sharper black output of textual content. This not only results in a higher quality print out but better readability as well. The installation of the appropriate device driver makes it possible to implement efficient and fast printing jobs with a maximum rate of approximately five printed pages per minute and two printed pages per minute for monochrome and colored printing respectively. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon S100SP errors before installing any driver updates.
