What are the tips to install printer driver in your system?
The Brother MFC-420CN is a very small inkjet all-in-one printer with features worthy of a much more expensive product. It scans, prints, faxes, copies, and delivers photos directly from its set of built-in media-card readers. Device drivers are software programs which act as an interface between the Operating System and the hardware device in the system. When the user requests any of the actions from the hardware device, this request would be directly transmitted to the drivers. Then the driver would modify that request into the machine understandable format and then send that in to the device. Each of the devices can only understand this machine language format. Printer drivers also have the same functionality. When the user sends any request to the printer, the printer driver sends the printer understandable format to the device.
