What is an audio device driver?

November 30th, 2006

An audio device driver enables your audio adaptor and PC to ‘communicate’ with each other. When you purchase your computer, it will most likely come with support (audio drivers) for the most common types of audio adaptors. HOWEVER, you do have to install them first before you can make full use of the sound card.

After installation, you may still get errors concerning the audio device driver. This is because it may no longer be updated by the time you install it (audio device manufacturers issue updated drivers all the time!).

What you can do is visit the website of the sound card manufacturer to check if they have updated drivers available. If not, you can conduct a free device driver scan from companies who offer such search tools.

Happy searching!
