In computing, a device driver is a computer program that operates or controls a particular type of device that is attached to a computer.

A driver typically communicates with the device through the computer bus or communications subsystem to which the hardware connects.

When a calling program invokes a routine in the driver, the driver issues commands to the device. Once the device sends data back to the driver, the driver may invoke routines in the original calling program.
