The MPIO Mass Storage Device actually references the internal storage capacity of the MPIO audio player. This feature is activated once the supported hardware component is connected to the host computer system using the Universal Serial Bus interface port. For the process to continue the corresponding device driver must also be installed into the same host machine. When successful the supported hardware component becomes a Universal Serial Bus based mass storage device. This will instruct the host computer system to automatically detect the attached hardware component as a removable storage media. By invoking this feature the supported media player is transformed into a portable external hard drive that can be used to store audio files. The device driver provides the computer user with the functionality of directly copying files using drag and drop procedures similar to the action when using conventional storage devices.
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 device driver for the MPIO Mass Storage Device is also accompanied by a proprietary software application. This software application allows the host computer system to detect the attached device as a type of standalone media player rather than a storage unit. Regardless of how it is detected by the host operating system environment the device driver plays a vital role in the communication between the two connected hardware components. The device driver makes is possible for the host computer system to allows the attached device as a mass storage media. At the same time it can allow it to perform as a media player. The main difference really lies on the function of upgrading the device firmware. This process can only be done if the associated software application is launched. Aside from this the supported hardware component can always function as a mass storage device. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and MPIO Mass Storage Device errors before installing any driver updates.
