One of the primary functionalities attributed to the device driver of the CanoScan FB320U is that it allows the supported hardware component and the host computer system to communicate with each other. Essentially much like printers and other attached devices the scanning device must be able to receive the commands transmitted by the underlying operating system as well as the various installed software applications. The supported hardware component must also be able to send notifications and alerts to the host computer system using the same communication infrastructure used by the host computer system. The device driver for the CanoScan FB320U is responsible for implementing the TWAIN compliant functionality of the supported hardware component. by installing the correct device driver the computer user gains the functionality of converting paper bound documents into their digital format. Once converted into digital format it can be subjected to post processing effects much like any digital document.
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 is also deployed by the manufacturer with a bundled utility that will assist the computer user in completing the scanning process in an easier manner. Essentially another role of the device driver is general is to hide from the computer user the technical details needed to complete a specific task. This is done by the manufacturer to simplify the process as well as encourage computer users that are not technically skilled to use the hardware component. This holds true for the device driver of the CanoScan FB320U which allows the computer user to complete the scanning process from a software interface or from within a program working environment. The device driver can also be used by the computer user to implement Optical Character Recognition technology. This successfully converts an image file into an editable document format that can be processed using any conventional text editor or word processing program. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan FB320U errors before installing any driver updates.
