Windows device driver information for PCI ECP/EPP Port

PCI ECP/EPP Port is a PCI port using the EPP/ ECP standard. PCI is an acronym for Peripheral Component Interface and refers to a local bus expansion that was created for the PCI local bus. There are no specific bus terminations and the bus relies on signal reflection to be able to realize level threshold. The current version of PCI runs at 66 MHz by means of a 64 bit bus. Port refers to software which is specific to a particular application or process. It serves as a communication endpoint and is used by the Internet Protocol Suite's transport layer protocols. These protocols can be either the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or the User Diagram Protocol (UDP). A port is usually identified through a specific number that is referred to as the port number. It is also identified by the IP address linked to it as well as the protocol that is utilized for communication.

Outdated Drivers?

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

PCI ECP/EPP Port uses the EPP/ECP standard. EPP is an acronym for Enhanced parallel port whereas ECP is an acronym for Enhanced Capability Port. EPP/ECP refers to a standard method of signaling that facilitates bi- directional communication from a computer to some peripheral device and back to the computer. The peripheral devices have a potential for data transfer rates which are higher than the original methods of parallel signaling. EPP is typically used for non- printer peripherals whereas ECP is mainly utilized in printers along with scanners. In order for a user to receive maximum benefits from the use of EPP/ ECP standard on a port, the standard must be supported by the peripheral device. For this device to function effectively and efficiently, users should always ensure that they are using the latest version of the device driver. Old versions have been known to create conflict and can produce errors in the work of the device. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and PCI ECP/EPP Port errors before installing any driver updates.
