what does the term "Raster" mean when related to my Cannon 620 Bubble Jet's latest Drivers, that I found on the Cannon site on the Net.

Instructions are sent on a pixel by pixel basis rather than as vectors/predefined shapes e.g. "draw a circle of size x at position x,y"

All it means is printer driver, printers print Images, an image is shown on a Raster display ie. Monitor, TV, or Paper even when it's text it is printed on a inkjet as a picture or Image

it's not likely to be any better than the Drivers that came with the origional Printer

Raster driver had limited abilities although the printer was slightly faster
