This particular hardware component is classified as a type of Media Card Reader component which allows the computer user to connect it to a high speed 2.0 version of the Universal Serial Bus interface port on the host computer system. Although majority of the devices that plug into this communication port are covered by the Plug and Play functionality found in newer operating system environments, the correct installation of the appropriate device driver will ensure that problems concerning data transfer and storage will be avoided. The device driver of this hardware component makes use of a SmartMedia card variant that is used as an external storage device. These types of storage devices provide the computer user with the necessary flexibility to implement mobile computing processes. This product line can be conveniently deployed in virtually every type of computing environment that has an available Universal Serial Bus interface port.
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 role of the device driver for this hardware component is to deliver reliable performance without sacrificing the high speed data transfer functionality of the communication port. For older computer systems that make use of the 1.1 version of the Universal Serial Bus interface port, the device driver allows for backward compatibility but with a corresponding decrease in data transfer speed. The decrease in data transfer speed can be attributed to the relatively slower data transfer rate achieved on older versions of the Universal Serial Bus interface port. Since it is an ideal solution for mobile computer users, the deployment of the Dazzle SM can also provide a host interface for CompactFlash, Memory Stick media, Secure Digital, and MultiMedia Card storage variants. This provides the computer user with the flexibility of simply transferring the storage media from the mobile device thereby eliminating the need to hook up cables. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dazzle SM errors before installing any driver updates.
