Drivers serve as the direct connective software device for the applications to the hardware device.

Just be aware that you should find the driver depending on the operating system being used and that the drivers are Microsoft® certified so you know that they have been tested on the Windows® operating systems.
Service Packs are bundles of updates that are essential for updating Windows® XP. You should get SP1, SP2 and SP3. Some programs require elements from the service packs.

These additional updates will help your programs function better and be even more reliable.
