The basic functionality of a modem is to provide the communication interface that will allow the host computer system to connect to remote systems or network environments like the Internet. The process in establishing the communication layer involves the conversion of the digital file into its analog counterpart allowing it to be sent across conventional telephone lines. The file is normally divided into smaller data packets and sent as analog signals which when received at the other end by another modem will be reverted to its original digital form to be used by the receiving computer system. This entire routine will not be possible without the installation of the device driver which first and foremost allows the host computer system to identify its presence. Once the a modem like the Megahertz CC-XJ1560 Fax-Modem is properly identified by the underlying operating system environment its feature sets are also made available to other communication programs currently installed in the host machine.
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
Basically there are various types of modems with different built-in feature sets. For the Megahertz CC-XJ1560 Fax-Modem aside from its basic functionality it also delivers solutions for the sending and receiving of fax messages. This feature is also activated by the device driver and is normally made available to various software applications by the inclusion of the fax option in the program menu. With the help of the device driver of the supported hardware component the computer user gains the flexibility of sending fax messages directly from the host machine. For example a computer user can create a document in a word processing program and instead of saving it or printing it onto a paper, there is an option that the created document can be sent directly as a fax message. The presence and activation of this feature set also allows the host computer system to function as a fax machine capable of receiving fax messages. This feature normally requires a type of fax emulation software. The device driver is partly responsible for distinguishing whether an incoming signal is a fax message or a data transmission. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Megahertz CC-XJ1560 Fax-Modem errors before installing any driver updates.
