The device driver is explicitly programmed by the manufacturer to provide the host operating system environment with the necessary details in order to make the supported hardware component operational and functional. Aside from this, the device driver can also be used to provide simple troubleshooting assistance especially for non-technical users. Normally the installation of the device driver is accompanied by a number of tools and utilities that are designed to enhance the printing operation including maintain functionality of the supported hardware component. This holds true with the device driver of the Canon S6300 which can be used to troubleshoot problems associated with the printing process. Since the device driver is the primary software based solution responsible for maintaining the integrity of the communication link between the supported hardware component and the host computer system, it is equipped with modules that can periodically test this connection.
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
Usually when installed into the host computer system the device driver communicates with the operating system platform and supports the execution of the related protocols. Like most hardware components attached to a host computer system, the Canon S6300 is also assigned its corresponding system resources like address and interrupts. These are used primarily by the underlying operating system to keep track of the processes that are intended for a specific hardware component. In this case the processes are actually print jobs that are queued to the printer hardware component. The device driver monitors all print requests being sent out by the host computer system and uses the same communication link to provide the computer user with relative feedbacks. The same process is used by the device driver to inform the compute user if there is a need to replace the ink cartridge or to put more paper. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon S6300 errors before installing any driver updates.
