Drivers help the hardware understand the requirements of the Operating System so that required functions can be performed. All external devices such as printers, scanners, gamepads etc. require drivers. If your Brother laser printer did not come with a product disc containing drivers, then they would have to be downloaded and installed on the system. When downloading drivers for Brother laser printers, users must ensure that the drivers being downloaded are of the correct type specification. Users must also remember to download only latest version drivers as installation of outdated versions of printer drivers might reduce the functioning of the printer and cause errors during use of the printer.
