USB Emergency Connection Problem Fixes

If you believe the adverts, then installing a USB device is easy. All you have to do is to attach it to a free port on your PC, then Windows will automatically recognise the device and install the drivers that you need. The problem is that things don’t always run this smoothly. When they don’t you fall into a trap where you can’t get your USB device to work at all. The device will be reported as ‘unknown’ in the Device Manager and when you try to manually install a driver the process will fail. Automatic hardware detection often fails too: your device may be recognised, but it doesn’t work or you can’t find the correct entry for it in the Device Manager. In this article, I’ll show you the problems that can occur when installing USB devices and how to solve them.
