Need help to Work with Drivers
  

Hello friends, it is first post on this forum so if do any mistakes then please forgive me, now I wanted to know: How software works among and uses a tool through its driver set up on the operating system? Since the leak of knowdge I asked this question .First I want to know for what reasons a Driver is complete and does it include any libraries to make use of for programming? Please give your response to me for my better knowledge.

Re: Need help to Work with Drivers

A driver is act as mediator between a machine and an operating system. It works as a translator. The operating system gives instructions in a confident format and the driver makes those instructions comprehensible to the hardware tool. Likewise, the driver reformats instruction from the machine into something the operating system will identify. To write a driver, you require being familiar with what 'hooks' you require paying attention for and talking to in the OS you plan on using and the information of the hardware tools I/O.

Re: Need help to Work with Drivers

Thanks for your quick Answer. But my major problem is that: I wish for to build up software which can get some information (indication strength and indication quality and etc...) from my DVB tool. So, How can I do that? How can I use its driver in my program? Does a driver contain any functions in itself? If yes then how can I find out what are those functions? As you post your above simple and easy to understand answer like same answer for this one also as per my expect.

What is your DVB tool? Give us correct information. In the mean time, verify the following links: link and link. As well as, check out DVBCore. We could help out if you inform us what accurately you are trying to do. "For example, I am developing DVB-based software that is use to record broadcasted substance in DivX4 format. I would like to comprise signal strength and other parallel variables into the user line. The programming language is C#. The DVB card is TechniSat Skystar2." If you provide all information like as I write example above then it will become easy to understand to us and then we try to solve your problem as easy as possible for you.

Re: Need help to Work with Drivers

When I read your thread on this forum then I discoursed to my one of the friend. He is software engineer because I think your question is software related then he told me that first he want to know the all information about what you want to do exactly. So my friend I would like to suggest you that for this problem you have to make contact with software related person like any software engineer with you all information and tell him what you want to do. I am sure he will solve your problem too easily.

Re: Need help to Work with Drivers

This is one of those "if you have to ask, you can not do" types of questions: To carry out the task to ask, you must have the source code by the driver (very unlikely unless, perhaps, you are using a Linux driver under the GPL), or reverse-engineer/hack the driver. This requires a thorough knowledge of programming in machine code level, the ability of electrical engineering, and knowledge of the hood of your operating system. At the time of acquiring the skills to do this, the problem is probably an academic - the latest drivers, operating system and hardware have been replaced as it has today. This does not mean someone could not have done this already. Hit your favorite search engine with keywords related to your situation and hope for the best.
