    Unable to communicate with USB serial device.


    Hello, I'm unable to communicate with a USB serial device, namely an Arduino Nano. Under device manager, USB serial has a ! symbol, and it reports that no driver is installed. I've tried searching for drivers, but nothing seems to be recognised as a suitable driver when I try to update it. Does anyone have a solution?Regards, Stuart

    :)

  3. 3.0 USB not compatible with USB 2.0 printer

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We understand the inconvenience caused and will assist you.

    • Press Windows key + X, select Device Manager.
    • Expand Universal Serial Bus Controller.
    • Right click on the driver, select Update Driver Software and follow the on-screen prompts.

    If the issue still persists, follow the steps provided below:

    • Press Windows key + X, select Device Manager.
    • Expand Universal Serial Bus Controller.
    • Right click on the driver, select Uninstall.
    • Restart the system and check for status.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    windows can`t communicate with epson 7620 scanner using usb

    Hi Lake,

    Thank you for your response.

    As per the description, I understand that the Epson device/program is not compatible with the USB 3.0.

    I suggest you to connect it to the USB 2.0 and check if the same issue persists.

    I suggest you to disable and re-enable the USB controllers. The following steps will uninstall all the USB controllers and then re-install them:

    • Right click on Start, and then click
      Run.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and then click
      OK
      . Device Manager opens.
    • Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    Note: You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.

    • Right click the first USB controller under
      Universal Serial Bus controllers
      , and then click Uninstall to remove it.
    • Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under
      Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    Note: Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
