The CanoScan LiDE 80 is a flatbed scanning device that can implement either a monochrome or a colored process provided that the correct device driver is installed in the host computer system. The execution of the scanning process of this hardware component is supported by the Contact Image Sensor scanner element. The device driver makes use of a light source that is based on the RGB Light Emitting Diodes. The presence of the correct device driver allows the computer user to implement a maximum optical resolution of 2400 dots per inch. The maximum hardware resolution is set by the manufacturer at 2400 by 4800 dots per inch. If the computer user decides to make use of an Interpolated scanning process the device driver allows for a maximum of 9600 by 9600 dots per inch scanning resolution. All of these resolutions are supported by the device driver based on the preferences set by the computer user prior to the execution of the scanning process.
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 also presents the computer user with a number of scanning mode options. When selecting a colored scanning mode the computer user can make use of either a 48-bit internal or external process. In grayscale mode the input is set at 16-bit while the output is limited to 8-bit. For film sources however the output is set at 16-bit for the scanning process. The computer user also has the option of selecting Black and White or Text enhanced scanning modes. All of these scanning modes are made available to the computer user by the device driver via a software interface. In some instances (depending on the software application) the scanning mode options may be invoked from within the working environment. In order to implement a film scanning process the computer user must make use of a Film Adapter Unit. The device driver supports the version 2.0 of the Universal Serial Bus interface port. It is also possible that the device driver can support older versions of the communication port but the data transfer speed may be relatively slower. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan LiDE 80 errors before installing any driver updates.
