One of the most important functions of device drivers is to activate add-on feature sets in the supported hardware component. These feature sets may or may not affect the basic operation of the device but are incorporated by the manufacturer to extend the functionality of the device. For the hp psc 2200 series one of the add-on features is the presence of the photo card reader. The device driver allows the host computer system to detect the supported photo cards to be detected as another storage drive that is attached externally. Photo cards that are supported by the card slot on the hp psc 2200 series include SmartMedia, SecureDigital, Sony Memory stick, and CompactFlash types. The memory card slots are clearly marked on the hardware component to help the computer user identify the correct slot where to insert the photo card.
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
By supporting the functionality of the photo card reader the device driver allows for the saving or copying of the stored images into the hard drive of the host computer system. The saved image file can then be edited or processed using the proprietary software application bundled with the hardware component or other similar programs from other developers. The device driver also provides the computer user with the flexibility of directly printing photographs on the hp psc 2200 series from the inserted photo card. Another option available to the computer user is the printing of a proof sheet based on the stored image files in the photo card. The device driver allows the computer user to select the thumbnail option and configure the printing options for the proof sheet. The proof sheet can then be scanned by the computer user to be processed based on the directions specified in the printing options. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and hp psc 2200 series errors before installing any driver updates.
