USB device not recognized on my laptop but recognized in other pcs/lap

Q: USB device not recognized on my laptop but recognized in other pcs/lap

Hello everyone..
Yesterday my laptop pushed a new Win 10 update, and all went fine, or at least I think so.
But today I see that my Sony WALKMAN - which I used with no problem until now, can't be recognized anymore.

Basically it just shows as (E or Usb Drive E: but when I click it it says "Please insert a disk into E:/" like there is nothing there.

Now the interesting part is.. if I go to Device Manager I see it and clicking on properties etc t says it's working fine.

But if I go to Disk Management, the Drive shows as 14 gb of unallocated space and it's greyed out.

However, if I put it on my brother's laptop, it works perfectly and it can be opened, music moved into it etc - it shows as Healthy - Primary Partition in Disk Management. So it doesn't seem broken...

It's the same on each of the 4 usb ports btw. But, other usb devices (2 phones, 1 tablet) don't have any issue and are detected.

What could have caused this? I tried the basic Disable/Enable in Device Manager and also Uninstall Driver.. It doesn't do anything, it appears back when I replug it in.

No change in Safe Mode and no change after sfc /scannow

If anyone has any idea I'd be happy to try anything to fix this..

Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

A: USB device not recognized on my laptop but recognized in other pcs/lap

This problem is being reported by many forum members with many different USB devices. It seems that Windows 10 Anniversary is having problems properly recognizing certain USB drives and devices. So far, no one has come up with a clear fix for this issue but it sounds like it is clearly related to the Anniversary update. For the record, I did a clean install and have not had any issues but most of the people reporting this problem make reference to updating to Anniversary.

Hello,

I have a PC which is having a lot of trouble recognizing a USB data acquisition device. Starting from a situation where the PC *does* recognize the device, here is the basic pattern:

1. PC shows device in Device Manager under "Data Acquisition Devices".

2. If the PC is power-cycled via the power plug itself, the device is no longer recognized under Device Manager ("Unknown Device").

3. If the PC is power-cycled via Start Menu --> Turn Off, same results as above, no longer recognized.

4. If the PC is power-cycled via Start Menu --> Restart, no problems, device recognized.

When the device is not recognized, unplugging and replugging the USB cable makes no difference to the situation. In order to correct the issue, I disable and then enable via Device Manager (which also involves a restart).

This pattern is extremely repeatable.

I am working with WinXP SP2, Pentium, 2.8 GHz, 504 MB RAM.

This PC was returned from a customer site - the PC and USB device are used in a machine my company manufactures. Apparently this issue just started happening one day. We want not only to correct the issue, but in fact to understand the root cause and ensure it will not happen again in the future.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
 

A:USB Device Recognized / Not Recognized based on shut-down method

You could try reinstalling the usb drivers.
JohnWill has fix that is worth a try

Johnwill's solution

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"
-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse, you'll have to modify the instructions and leave enough parts for those to function. I don't have one yet, so I haven't had time to modify the instructions.

I'm using an Acer Aspire 5100 with Windows XP installed. Due to malware or some other problem, and because I was due, I formatted my hard drive and installed XP. This is the first time I've done so with this laptop. I downloaded and installed drivers that appeared to be missing - my display drivers for my monitor, and for the wireless card.

Problem: I can hear no sound. The only sound that has played is a PC Beep. Windows does not recognize my sound card; the drivers are not installed properly. It seems that I cannot install them.

The PDF containing the list of drivers is here: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/acerdrivers.cfm ; scroll down to Aspire 5100.

My sound is not working. Volume Control tells me there is no mixer, and everything dealing with my sound settings is faded out (there are no devices to select), and no options.

Here's my device mananger: http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c395/-FLCL-/DeviceManager-1.jpg

I have only updated drivers for the BroadCom Adapter and my Monitor/Display.

The driver I should have installed for sound, according to the PDF, is the Realtek Audio Driver v5.10.0.5257. I downloaded this, but cannot install it. Under my device manager, I have 'Audio Codecs' and 'Legacy Audio Drivers', but those don't seem to work. I cannot uninstall them, and windows will not let me override the drivers with my own.

Thanks in advance.

I tried replacing the hard drive on my Inspiron 9300 with a 200G drive.  The administrative computer tools in Windows XP recognized it, but the BIOS showed it as 130G or so.  I finally had to replace the drive with a smaller one.  I had the latest BIOS version.  Is there a BIOS fix that will allow the larger hard drive to be used?

I just rebuilt an old system using Windows 7 Home Premium after using WinXP pro for many years. The primary hard drive is WDC 150 Mg and Win7 is installed and updated to current with SP1. I dropped a second WDC hard drive in, formatted and was going to use it for a 2nd backup unit. Both of these are sata. Both hard drives are recognized by Disk Management but when I select Computer on the start menu ONLY the primary 150 Mg drive is recognized. If I plug in an external drive, both Computer and Disk Management recognizes the external drive. How do I have Win7 recognize my backup WDC drive so I can use it.

Had similarities on my pc.

Goto BIOS, there you have 4 options.

Primary Master
Secondary Master

Primary Slave
Secondary Slave

Set it as follows:

Primary Master -----> Main Boot HDD
Secondary Master -----> EMPTY

Primary Slave -----> CD/DVD RAM
Secondary Slave -----> Secondary backup HDD
Hpe it helps!

I have a Fujitsu P1510D, XP Pro w/ SP2. Just received my NU USB2.0 DVD drive. When I first plugged it in it wasn't recognized, a little fiddling and it was... and Nero started to install. I stopped the installation and ran AVG to check for viruses. AVG ran fine, but when it stopped, seems the drive went *poof*. Nero's install screen was still up, but it couldn't find anything.

I've tried plugging it into both of the laptop's USB ports and into the hub, not recognized. Reboots with and without it plugged in. Removed "unknown device" in Dev Manager, plugged back in. Nothing. It doesn't show up as a drive, and each time I plug it back in it says the drive "malfunctioned". Tried going into Administrative Tools/Drive Management, but only the hd is there..

Tried System Restore. Interestingly, in going through the prompts, it said that no changes would be made to Device D:, though that drive letter wasn't there.

I've tried it on another laptop too, it says installing, ready to use, malfunctioning. Does this mean it's completely hosed and I should send it back, or is there something else I can try before I box it back up?

Hello everyone,
i hope you can help me sorting out this issue that is causing me a hard headache at the moment.

I've bought this new Lenovo Z50-70 laptop with windows 8.1 preinstalled on it. Fresh new.

I'm trying to connect via usb a guitar audio interface (Line6 POD HD500) so i installed the drivers via the .exe setup file i downloaded from Line6's site.
The device worked fine on my previous HP pavilion with windows 7.

Now when i completed the installation, i connected it and i had this error:Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)A request for the USB device descriptor failed.
I used slimdrivers to update all the other drivers, in case it was a conflict causing the error.
I checked via command prompt with command "pnputil -e" and i saw a driver from the vendor of the device listed, so it is installed correctly i think.
I tried all USB ports i have, 3.0 and 2.0 on one side of laptop and 2.0 on other side.

When on device manager, if i click update drivers and choose the "let me pick from a list of device drivers.." i don't see the company name of the device.

i saw that another guy posted a really similar problem on SevenForum and he figured out how to force windows to use the drivers but he didn't post the solution.. Here is the post: Can't get Windows 7 x64 to use the drivers I've installed repeatedly Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums

Hello all. It has been a while since I've needed help but my run of luck has hit an ugly downturn. Moved my computer three weeks ago and had not plugged it all back together till last night. All these years I had used it without a password to log in but a few months back a tech friend expressed horror at this so I started using one. Last night no matter what I did it wouldn't let me log in, saying incorrect password. Today as I messed around again I went through the steps of asking it to reset password (even though I didn't have disc for reset) and realized it does not seem to be recognizing my internal drive. If one of my externals are on they come up but if I turn off externals I get a bubble that says 'No Drive. This feature requires removable media etc.' My drive seems to be running and the Windows logos do appear during boot. My keyboard seems to be functioning to type password, but when I hit F8 while rebooting I get no reaction, so cannot boot to safe mode, just goes right back to log in page. I have had mold/moisture issues in this new house but have had a dehumidifier running since just a few days after computer arrived here. However I do see some evidence of mold or dust in the case, not a lot but some. Not sure what the root of this problem is but I am trying hard not to panic. Any ideas?
 

A:Internal drive not recognized/password not recognized

Your tech. friend may have mis-understood when you need a password.
If you are at home and only you and you trusted family have access to you computer, there is no need whatsoever for a logon password.
The only time I have ever needed one is when I was using my own laptop on clients site when I was contracting and I would leave it on the desk over lunch.

However, when I plug it into my brother's Cannon PowerShot it actually recognizes and shows all pictures on the card. Does anyone have any reason why this is happening and how I can recover the pictures? I am not willing to just format to make the card work again, I must have these pictures.

Firstly, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I wasn't sure where to put it.

For the last week or so I keep getting this error message in the bottom left hand corner of my screen.

"USB Device Not Recognized
One of the USB Devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message"

After clicking on it I get another window which consists of "USB Root Hub (2 Ports) and a drop down of Unused Port and Unknown Device. I have attached screenshots of this to help.

The only things connected by USB are my Wireless Adaptor, Speakers, Mouse, Keyboard and occasionally printer. Everything seems to be working fine so I can't see the problem, probably something simple that I'm missing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go into the Device Manager and see if you see any yellow question marks. If so post a screenshot.

Try unplugging each USB item until the issue goes away seeing which is the issue.

Here is the background on my system.

HP Pavilion DV7t 3000 CTO running W7 SP1, Intel Core i7 processor, 4 GB RAM.

Had an issue pop up the other day involving the left hand side dual USB ports where if I connect ANY peripheral USB device that device is not recognized. I thought it may simply be a driver issue so I checked for driver updates and none where found. Both ports run off of one power strip inside the laptop. Pics enclosed. I have tried everything known to man (at least that I can find via Google) to try and resolve the issue aside from replacing the USB ports. Finding the part shouldn't be too hard but installing it may be without a detailed breakdown of how to do it.

Before I drop my time and money on a new USB board what else can I try?

I tried it with a flash drive and it also happened. I suspect that the first computer at work did something to cause this.

I have tried rebooting and unplugging my computer with the device attached. Troubleshoot hasn't helped. I tried uninstalling it and updating software/drivers but it doesn't do anything.

Hello

i have a problem with my HD. After a computer crash while i was playing a game, i lost my USB disc in which the game was installed. I've had this problem before and i knew exactly what to do. Pretty much i did what is written in this post: http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=607173&highlight=usb+device+-recognised

i used the set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 command, and disabled all the phantom devices. However this time it didn't fix my problem. My USB disc is still not recognized, and even a second one that i have and wasn't installed at the time of the crash is not working. Same for my external cdrom (it has a firewire port so i don't care, the HD doesn't however).
I've removed EVERYTHING related to the HD and the USB devices in the device manager, even the Hub Root USB. But STILL, the disc is not recognised. Maybe i missed something, somewhere?

thanks in advance
btw the hd is working fine in another computer. but the usb port looks damaged (?). If i plug my mouse in it, it won't work. The USB HD doesn't work no matter in which USB port i plug it....

Here is my problem. Every Mass Storage device I put in the USB slots, came with the message USB not recognized...

It happened yesterday, when I plugged in the external hard disk into back USB slots. Hard disk works at other computer normally. Then I powered on my front USB slots (ther were turned off for couple of monts), put the phone, and it normally showed memory storage. Then I plugged hard disk into front slots, and it came with error. Then I again plugged phone in, but now I get the USB Device not recognizad, which is really weird, cause it worked a minute ago.

I tried every possible solution I googled, uninstalling SMS Bus Controllers, reinstalling chipset drivers and so on.

Weird thing is that Mass Storage devices aren't working on Windows 8 which is on the other partition within the same hard disk.

To mention, that all USB slots have normal power, hard disk is getting the power, phone is charging, Wireless Adapter is also working normally. I really don't know what could be the problem.

Is it possible that this hard disk could somehow insert some wrong data, because he is the source of this plague

Thanks in advance, waiting for suggestions

Hi,
Couple of questions. Does the external hard drive have its own power supply? Have you tried plugging the drive in without the phone charging? You may be drawing too much current from the 5 volt supply in your computer charging a phone and plugging in am external hard drive without a separate power supply.

Hi guys, first time on the SevenForums so go easy on me I consider my self pretty savvy when it comes to computers, but this problem made me question myself. Today while I was repairing my friend's virus-infested laptop, I've made a terrible mistake - I used my very own USB flash drive on his laptop. I was a bit too late when I came to realize this, and his laptop could no longer identify my flash drive.

First off, I thought that this might be his computer's problem, but it wasn't. I tried plugging it into my own computer when I get home, and the computer would not recognize it.

For troubleshooting, I did the following.Plugging it into different USB ports on my computer.
Restarting the computer
Plugging it into another computer
Plug a different USB drive.
I've come to a conclusion that only the flash drive that I used to plug into my friend's computer was not working. Of course I did a virus scan after the troubleshooting - it gave me 5 infections from Trojan Generic and 2 from Trojan Downloader.

My first guess is that the viruses made my flash drive went kaput, and that I will need to reformat it. But now the computer could not even recognize the drive.

I will appreciate you guys' help.

Hi guys-

I just bought a new mobile phone and tried to connect it to my PC using a USB cable (which came as an accessory with the phone), Windows XP SP3 gave me the following error: "USB Device not recognized". But the phone is charging and I checked Device Manager->Universal Serial Bus Controllers and there were no yellow exclamation marks either.

In total I have 6 physical USB Ports, 4 in the back & 2 in the front. On one of the ports on the back I have my HP Printer connected (the device is in power off mode).

The error message displayed is consistent for the 2 ports in the front, but for 2 out of the 4 ports in the back the phone connects perfectly displaying the internal & external memory in 2 separate drives, as for 1 port in the back it says "High speed usb device attached to non high speed hub"

What is going on??

This is getting irritating enough I am tempted to go back to XP. Every time I plug in a USB device to charge it, for example my GoPro helmet cam, or just have an empty USB cable plugged in to one of the PC's ports and leave it on my desk so its ready to plug something else - I get that P.I.T.A. message popping up every couple of seconds.It won't go away either, it just keeps popping up again and again.
I have the all the latest updates, including the latest service pack. I powered off the CPU by unplugging it for 5 minutes and it still pops up whenever I plug in a cable or a device like one of my pocket video cams just to charge it.

I tried looking up what could cause this, but too many results and nothing percise.

I have an custom made computer with an intel motherboard (an old D850GB) all was well and then I reinstalled windows p. I used to have USB when I first installed it, but I think I wound up getting a bunch of windows updates all at once, and then the next thing I know when I tried to access something with USB, NOTHING happened.

I have a PCI USB 2 card that doesn't work and neither do the two slots on the motherboard. I have NO Idea what could have gone wrong. Any pointers would be nice.

The motherboard comes with a cd, and I tried to install the software that came with it but it fails every time.

I'm totally stumped.

Your sister's laptop might need Windows reinstalled if you removed 2K viruses from her computer. Go to the Virus & Malware Removal thread and perform the 8-Step removal instructions. Post the logs created

First off i have to say i know VERY little about computers. this morning when i turned my computer on i couldn't get my external hard drive to work . I kept getting the message USB Device not Recognized.....One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it. I then unplugged everything from my usb ports and figured out that the only things that would be recognized were the mouse and the keyboard. I have tried the system restore but that has not helped. The Device Manager Just says No drivers are installed for this device even though i have (up until this morning) been useing these devices with no problems for months.

Hi. I just purchased a Mustek PVR-H160 (alternately titled Mediasonic VR9400E) that is having the same problem. All I need is for XP to recognize the fact it's a mass storage device, and I can take it from there. Will the fix you provided for azainsworth (resetting all usb drivers) work for me too? The drivers off the install CD don't work at all for XP, neither do the drivers from Mustek or Mediasonic (which doesn't exist anymore). I've also checked just about every other driver site online (driverguide, opendriver, etc.) and nobody has 'em. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

OK Here's my problem. I get a "USB Device Not Recognized" error when I plug my camera into the front USB port of my computer. It works fine when I plug it into the back USB port. Because of the position of my PC, it is a royal pain to get to the back side of the PC, so I really want to be able to use it in the front USB port.

I believe it was caused because I plugged it in before installing the driver software. The driver software is now in place, however it still will not recognize the camera. It shows up as "Unknown Device" in the device manager.

Can anyone help?

Hi.

Plug it in until it shows as unrecognised, then uninstall from within device manager, and try again.

This is staggering! I'm on the phone with Lenovo Canada and am being informed that the USB port on the right side is underpowered as a result of poor motherboard design! The two on the left side get full power, but the one on the right does not. They have informed the mobo manufacturer who is trying to come up with a workaround, but until then printers, wireless mice, etc., may experience the "USB Device not recognized" error warning on the port. My issue is with a Logitech VX Revolution mouse. I really want to get the USB wireless transmitter up out of the way as it's plugged in all the time, but it won't run up there . . . I've got a flawed machine, and Lenovo knows it. What do I do?![edit]: 43 minutes later (I need a speaker-phone!) the problem has been "escalated to level 2 techs" to see if they can reproduce the problem (case number 00060S9).

Unless they replace the motherboard, there is not much else you can do, except use the other 2 USB ports (up to 147 items per port, should be enough for everybody!).

I have a customer with a new notebook computer running Windows XP. It's a custom built computer from Nobilis, so I don't have a model number to provide. Several times a day, it shows a "USB device not recognized" error message (see screenshot below). Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce the error last time I was on-site, so he emailed me this screenshot. He doesn't connect anything to the computer (not even a printer or mouse). Any ideas what would show up as unknown, but only sometimes?

Take a look at all the usb ports and see if one looks damaged.
if there is a bent pin Mike it can cause that error

Hi guys!!

I've been meaning to ask some help regarding the issue that I am having however I was reluctant because of the fact that I fix computers for a living(I'm not that good at it though..).

I need help!!

I've been getting "USB device not recognized". I got the issue after purchasing a new power supply. I think my motherboard is fried. But I need your opinion guys. Here are the things that I did.

- went to device manager and uninstalled everything under USB controllers
- dismantled my computer to the very last piece and put everything back after an hour of waiting. (i made sure that the power was drained)
- put back my old power supply thinking that the new PSU that I bought was damaged

When I plug it in, it just says "USB device not recognized". I tried plugging my usb to a different computer and it was not working anymore. I did a little experiment and tried a good USB device on another computer. It worked well, for sure. I plugged it in mine, it said "USB device not recognized". Plugged it back in the computer that detected it earlier and BAM! It won't detect it anymore. Power surge I guess??? I am not sure...

Please Please Please.. I need your help on this guys..

1. Is my motherboard fried?
2. Is there a way for me to fix the devices that I plugged in my computer?

Many Thanks!!!

I have an HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop running XP Home and a Toshiba E335 PDA. Up until a few weeks ago I was able to sync the two using Active Sync 4.5. Suddenly, the laptop is not reconizing the pda. I get an error message saying that "one of the devices connected has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it." When I click on the annoying bubble I get an unknown device which eventually states that there are no drivers for the device. So reinstalled the drivers and I still get the same error. I've uninstalled the device and tried to reinstall in addition to visiting the Toshiba site and downloading the drivers from there. I can't rollback the drivers because it claims there are no drivers installed. It is extremely frustrating since it worked fine. I'm wondering if a Microsoft update might have screwed up things. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jean

Ok,
This has been a problem for some time now, and one by one all of my flash drives seem to be malfunctioning. When I insert the devices into the USB port it comes up with the message on the bottom right side of the screen saying "USB device not recognized" and when I click on it it says to "reconnect the device, if Windows still does not recognize it, then please replace the device".

I have tried various methods on the internet and I have also tried inserting it onto other computers but it seems to be the actual device and not the USB port that is the problem. What annoys me the most is that I was about to make a backup of the data on another flash drive, and I am really hoping I can recover it (about 13 years of photos etc. on there).

It must be the connecter as when I insert the device it vibrates and I can hear the disc (or whatever it is) spin and it even makes the sound on the computer (at least its picking it up) yet when I access My Computer there is nothing there. Intrestingly when I unplug it for a short period of time a folder comes up titled something along the lines of "General drive" (I forget what it is called and will check later when I have it with me). When I click on this it comes up with an error message saying "J: Drive refers to a location that is unavailable.."

I hope this can get fixed eventually,
thanks in advance.

I recently posted here about a USB problem. The thread is located here: Unkown Device - Usb - Tech Support Forum

Please read my initial post and the responses before you post to this thread.

The solution in that thread worked for a few days until the problem was back all of a sudden. So i uninstalled all USB devices and re installed all under the n7110 drivers in the chipset section. This again worked for a few days until the problem returned. But now, the problem seems to be there no matter what even if I do an entire reinstall of my drivers. Any help?
