You know that spiteful moment when you got yourself a new device and after you connect it to your computer, you still can't make proper use of it because of driver issues? May it be a printer, a camera, or any other device, missing drivers are a really big problem that cannot be easily ignored, as it simply prevents you from properly using that device. You might think that you'll get the drivers quickly and easily on the producer's websites, but often these sources are outdated, in foreign languages, supporting only different operating systems, and hindered by all kinds of problems. When nothing else seems to work, this little tool can save the day. DriverIdentifier has been created with the exact purpose of detecting the latest drivers for all the connected hardware, even when the infamous “unknown device” situation is encountered.

DriverIdentifier comes with plenty of advantages, including the fact that it's a reliable tool that rarely fails to provide you with the drivers you need. Its accuracy is given by the fact that it makes use of a huge up-to-date database of drivers from all hardware manufacturers.

Another cool thing about DriverIdentifier is the fact that it's really easy to use. Its simple, minimalistic interface displays only a single button, the one that starts the scanning procedure. Once the scanning is done, a webpage will be opened within your default browser to display the scan results. All the drivers are listed with details like their names, manufacturers, versions, and so on. The ones that weren't up-to-date came with an “Update” link that helps you obtain their latest versions. As you can see, this tool is also a powerful driver updater that helps you get rid of problems caused by obsolete drivers.

DriverIdentifier is also fast, as scanning takes only a few seconds. This tool will save you precious time in a lot of ways. Since it offers an undeniably convenient and reliable method of solving your driver-related issues, and it's also free, I can only recommend DriverIdentifier with all my heart.
