General Purpose Drivers

For any piece of hardware to work correctly, it needs to communicate with the computer. That’s where the general purpose driver comes in, acting as a translator between the two components and making sure the computer can receive and send data to the device.

Check out our catalogue of general purpose drivers below to find the component that’s right for you.

What is a general purpose driver?

General purpose drivers are a group of files that enable a computer’s operating system to communicate effectively with one or multiple hardware devices. Without the presence of general purpose drivers, the hardware would not work properly.

The computer’s program summons a routine from the general purpose driver, which in turn passes on its command to the device. The piece of hardware then sends the relevant data back to the general purpose driver, which passes the information back to the computer’s program.

The computer will usually send an alert if it detects a new device which does not yet have a driver installed, and each device has its own specific commands that the general purpose driver must translate for the computer.

Which devices require a general purpose driver?

DVD drives and hard drives both use general purpose drivers, while any standard personal computer hardware – for example a mouse, keyboard or printer – also use a driver to communicate effectively with the operating system.

At times, there will be general purpose driver updates that may be required to ensure the device continues to work properly. A new piece of hardware will need a fresh installation of a driver, and any upgrades to the computer system may also prompt the need for a new device driver.
