Windows 2000, Windows Millennium Edition (ME) and Windows XP provide a kernel mode print driver for USB printers known as Usbprint.sys, which works with Usbmon.dll port monitor which is system supplied to ensure that a full connectivity is supplied between printer drivers of high level and USB printers. These components combine to come up with a printing solution for Microsoft USB. Vendors are generally recommended to write printer drivers of high level which get support from Usbprint.sys instead of writing kernel-mode print drivers. Usbprint.sys simplifies the writing task of high level printer drivers. Kernel-mode operations including power management are handled by Usbprint.sys on behalf of high-level printer drivers. Usbprint.sys ensures a provision of a similar interface to the one parallel printers use. Single printer drivers are thus capable of working in a correct manner on both parallel port and USB.
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
To ensure the most cross-platform compatibility, printer drivers that are vendor supplied are recommended not to depend on device control commands that are proprietary. Printer drivers which follow these guidelines are capable of driving printers over parallel ports and USB on Windows ME Windows XP and Windows 2000. The installation mechanisms of printer drivers are similar in the above operating systems. Compatibility between USB Printer Sharing and USB printer drivers ensures that printers are transparently shared across TCP/IP networks including Airport and this is significantly beneficial to users. USB printer drivers can also seamlessly work with USB Printer Sharing while maintaining the capability of using pass pointers and custom codes to private data as well as displaying the correct name of the printer on the Chooser. Breaking the link between printer drivers and their USB is USB Printer Sharing functions. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DeluxUSBPCCamPro errors before installing any driver updates.
