  1. Laptop selectively failing to recognise USB device


    My laptop recognises USB drives OK, but it won't recognise an SD flash card inserted via an adaptor into the same USB slot. My PC will recognise both and it's also running Win10. Anyone got any ideas, please? Thanks. My laptop is running 10.0.19041 Build 19041 MY PC is running 10.0.19042 Build 19042

  2. Laptop selectively failing to recognise USB device

    My laptop recognises USB drives OK, but it won't recognise an SD flash card inserted via an adaptor into the same USB slot. My PC will recognise both and it's also running Win10.
    Anyone got any ideas, please?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. There are in fact two USB ports on the laptop, neither of which works, and three on the front of the PC, all of which work. It's not really worth getting a new adapter because i seldom need to read an SD card on the laptop and i can always read it on to my PC and transfer the data using a normal USB drive. But i appreciate the suggestions.

    USB devices not working after Device Manager spring clean

    The USB ports started failing intermittently again and then permanently.

    Reinstalled 1703 again and that fixed it for a while then they started failing again.

    When I plug in any peripheral it shows up in device manager with the exclamation mark.

    I right-click 'update driver'
    Choose 'browse my computer...'
    'Let me pick from a list of...'
    Select the best candidate

    Then the device will work. Until it is unplugged and plugged in again...

    Then we are back to square one for that device.

    Are there any suggestions for kicking the USB hub back to life so it recognises ordinary USB devices like mouses and keyboards without a manual driver update?
