The DSC TWAIN Device (3310) makes use of a TWAIN driver for communicating with a host computer system. A TWAIN driver is capable of handling communication among computer software and devices for imaging such as a scanner device. It can provide a universal standard that enables the possibility for all software capable of image handling to recognize information delivered by an imaging device connected to the host PC. It is installed in computer systems where software used for scanner and digital camera devices are likewise installed. The TWAIN driver used by the DSC TWAIN Device (3310) is a vital component of the capability of imaging software to recognize scanner and digital camera devices. Once a scanner or digital camera device is connected to the computer system, the TWAIN driver will then let the computer software know what kind of device was connected and the manner of information transfer should be used. Without a TWAIN driver, the computer software will not be able to properly recognize the connected device as well as the information stored in the device.
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 requirement for a universal standard among imaging devices and imaging software was recognized in the year 1992 – the same year that imaging devices and software emerged. This requirement for a means of communication that is standardized among imaging software and devices resulted in the inception of the TWAIN initiative which is made up of the industry’s top players. This group remains active in ensuring that the TWAIN standard is up to par with existing and future digital imaging technology. The term TWAIN is not an acronym, it was selected by Kevin Bier who is one of the first authors of the TWAIN 1.0 standard, after reading letters written by the great Mark Twain. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DSC TWAIN Device (3310) errors before installing any driver updates.
