Some of the most common peripheral devices that can be connected to the computer are:</p> <ul><li>Keyboard </li> <li>Mouse </li> <li>Printer </li> <li>Scanner </li> <li>Digital Camera </li> <li>USB Flash Drive </li> </ul><p>Today most peripherals, like the keyboard, scanner and printer, connect to your computer via external USB ports.</p> <p>Some of your peripherals will need special software, which you install on your computer so that your operating system will be able to communicate with and send instructions to the device. These sorts of software are called drivers and you should receive instructions on how to install the driver when you acquire the peripheral. These are often contained in the 'Quick Start' guide.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/taxonomy/term/39" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">devices</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/taxonomy/term/40" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">USB ports</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/taxonomy/term/42" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">USB</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/taxonomy/term/41" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">drivers</a></div></div></div> Wed, 02 Feb 2011 10:32:16 +0000 katie 8 at
