The Trust 240TH Direct Webscan Gold WIA Scanner is an imaging device which allows the computer user to convert paper based documents into their digital format. The process of digitizing these documents results in an image file which can be stored in the host computer system and subjected to post processing effects if necessary based on the requirements of the computer user. The device driver of this particular hardware component complies with the Windows Image Acquisition protocol standards of one of the mainstream operating system platforms. This particular protocol supported by the device driver is built into the operating system and provides only basic functionalities to the computer user to complete the scanning process. This device driver standard serves as an alternative to the TWAIN specification for imaging devices. This protocol supported by the device driver lessens the development cost for equipment manufacturers because support is already built into the operating system. The drawback though is that the computer user does not have the options for calibrating the scanning process which may require the use of post processing effects.
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 Windows Image Acquisition protocol model implemented by the device driver is commonly considered as a stripped down version of the TWAIN standard. In this context the device driver provides the computer user with an interface that is generated directly by the operating system. Generally the computer user can only specify the type of picture file that will be produced by the scanning process among others. An advantage though to this protocol is that many manufacturers believe that it will outlast the TWAIN standard because of its mainstream support and lesser cost of deployment. Another advantage is that although the device driver of the Trust 240TH Direct Webscan Gold WIA Scanner is tailor fitted for the Windows Image Acquisition standards it remains accessible by TWAIN compliant software applications. So if the computer user executes these types of programs more advanced scanning options will be made available to him. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Trust 240TH Direct Webscan Gold WIA Scanner errors before installing any driver updates.
