Most computers have input ports that can be used to connect external devices to the computer. Once an external device, such as a memory card, is connected to the computer, it can interact with the device through the "drivers," which are installed on the computer to communicate with internal hardware or an external device. These drivers create values in the operating system that can be accessed through the Windows registry.
