    Unknown USB Device (Set Address Failed)


    Windows version 21H1 19043-985 Windows 10 Pro 64bit I am running a WD RED 10GB RAID 1 mirror on an unmanaged external enclosure. Enclosure specs are here HUR5-SU31C , 2 Bay USB 3.1 Type-C Specs - Mediasonic Forum I've had this enclosure connected to a Windows 10 machines for several months now with no hiccups. It acts as my Plex library. A couple days ago after I performed a Windows update, the drive started to disconnect when attempting to write data to it. I checked out device manager and it showed Unknown USB Device (Set Address Failed). I can toggle the power on the enclosure but as soon as I try to write something to it or even delete something explorer freezes and disconnects the enclosure. So I moved it over to another machine, running same windows version and it works fine. I can write and delete to it and no problems, no freezes, no disconnects. While the drive is in the Unknown USB Device (Set Address Failed) state, I uninstall the driver, rescanned hardware and it pops up again as Unknown USB Device (Set Address Failed). The only way I can get it to recognize it to power cycle the enclosure but the problem occurs again. If I reboot the computer sometimes the drive will be recognized and sometimes it won't. Since the enclosure works in another computer I assume there is something wrong with the specific machine. I have 2 other external drives connected to it, an external WD 12GB and a smaller 4GB 3rd party external enclosure, all working fine. I've tried switching usb ports but same result. I don't believe the cable is bad because it works fine on another machine with the same usb cable. Any suggestions? - - - Updated - - - I am going to try this and will report back if it does not fix it. USB drive or flash problems?

    a request for device descriptor request failed

    Maybe it's time to step back from the current efforts, and start over. I suggest you read over this excellent tutorial and try all of its steps: [Solved] Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) for Windows 10 - Driver Easy. The one that may provide you with some easy relief is the one where you uninstall the device whose descriptor is failing, reboot, and see what happens when device enumeration recurs during boot-up. If you're lucky, it will fix itself.
