    USB Mass Storage Issues with Thumb Drives


    I'm having issues with a USB drive. I've tried several different thumb drives in every USB port on my desktop. When inserting the drive, Windows makes the noise recognizing it's been inserted.


    The drive does not show up in explorer. I went to Device Manager and it/they are showing up under "Other Devices" with the orange triangle and exclamation point to it. Double clicking and trying to "update driver", I get "Windows found drivers for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install them." "USB Mass Storage Device".


    When troubleshooting, I saw instructions to delete the various drivers under Universal Serial Bus controllers there are several under there.....but USB Mass Storage Device is NOT listed, and then rebooting. I did try deleting some and the end result was my wireless keyboard stopped working and I had to go back to a restore point from a couple of weeks ago.


    In short, I appear to be missing a USB Mass Storage Driver and see no way to re-install one. I have no idea how this would happen, I don't use this computer very often.


    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    :)

    USB Mass Storage Issues with Thumb Drives

    how to change "USB attached SCSI mass storage device" to "USB mass storage device"

    Hi there:

    I have a Seagate USB portable drive and I mainly use it to connect to my ASUS Oplay! media player to watch the content on TV.

    This device use to be an USB mass storage device.

    Recently, I noticed whenever I eject my seagte portable drive, the device is showing as ""USB attached SCSI mass storage device" instead of a regular "USB mass storage device". This is when my media player stopped recognising the portable drive (showing
    the device is not supported). The portable drive works fine on my Windows 10 PC, just not recognising by my media player anymore.

    Wondering if anyone can point out how I can restore my portable hard drive back to a generic USB mass storage device instead of being a "USB attached SCSI mass storage device".

    Thank you.
