The EPSON Stylus COLOR 600/600Q is a type of printing device which relies on the correct installation of a printer driver for its proper operation. Essentially drivers are considered as device dependent applications which mean that they are written specifically for the component that they are intended to support. In this context it means that a printer driver cannot be interchanged with another printing device's hardware even if they are manufactured by the same company. Probably an exception to this is devices which belong to the same product line like EPSON Stylus COLOR 600 series may have the same driver as that of the EPSON Stylus COLOR 610 for example. When installing the printer driver, it will simultaneously extract into the host computer system an accompanying utility program which is meant to keep track of the operation of 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
In most computer systems running under the Microsoft Windows Operating System platform, the printer driver is partially responsible for the conversion of graphical information (drawings) generated by certain software applications into its device specific instruction. What this basically implies is that when the commands are generated by the imaging program, it contains instructions on how to control the behavior of the printing head to arrive at an accurate printed material. This also eliminates the complexities associated with the conversion process by keeping the details away from the user and automating the printing process based on the preferences defined by the computer user. The EPSON Stylus COLOR 600/600Q driver therefore interacts with the API (Applications Programming Interface) which is also known as the GDI (Graphics Device Interface) for 32-bit computer systems. The driver also provides real time status of the device. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and EPSON Stylus COLOR 600/600Q errors before installing any driver updates.
