This imaging device is considered as a tabloid sized scanning hardware component because it is capable of handling an A3 sized source on its 12- by 17-inch scanner bed. The device driver allows the computer user to specify the optical scanning resolution that will be implemented during the process. According to its manufacturer the ScanMaker 1000XL is capable of implementing a maximum of 6400 by 3200 dots per inch optical scanning resolution. This resolution is implemented with a maximum optical density of 4.0. The ScanMaker 1000XL is designed to allow it to be connected to a host computer system either via Firewire or Universal Serial Bus interface port. These two types of connections supported by this scanning device are considered as two of the fastest types of interfaces in modern computing systems. This translates to a better and faster handling of data from the scanning hardware to the host computer system.
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 ScanMaker 1000XL device driver allows it to be deployed as a network scanning device. This allows the supported hardware component to be shared with other users of the network environment. The device driver is partly responsible for notifying network users on the actual status of the scanning hardware to make sure that it is in ready status prior to the sending of scanning tasks. The device driver also supports the implementation of an optional add-on interface which extends the functionality of the ScanMaker 1000XL. This add-on component provides the computer user with the ability of scanning transparent media type sources like x-ray films, film negatives, and positive transparencies. The manner of scanning implemented by this hardware component converts the hardware copy to its digital counterpart and saves it as an image file. Using Character Recognition software applications it is possible for the computer user to harvest the textual contents on the source and edit them on word processing programs. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ScanMaker 1000XL (USB) errors before installing any driver updates.
