Fixing USB not recognised error

First, try unplugging the USB device from your computer and then plugging it back in. This might seem like a simple solution, but sometimes that’s all it takes to get things working again. If that doesn’t work, try restarting your computer.

If those two solutions don’t work, the next thing to try is to update your USB drivers. This can be done by going to the Device Manager (you can search for it in the Start menu). Once there, find the Universal Serial Bus controllers section and click on it to expand it.

Right-click on each item and select “Update Driver Software.” If there are any updates available, they will be downloaded and installed automatically. After updating your USB drivers, restart your computer and see if the problem has been fixed.

If you’re still having trouble, the next thing to try is to uninstall the USB device from your computer. To do this, go back to the Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers section again. Find the USB device you want to remove, right-click on it, and then select “Uninstall.”

Restart your computer and then plug in the USB device again. It should now be reinstalled and working properly.

If you’ve tried all of these solutions and you’re still having problems, it’s possible that there’s something wrong with the USB device itself. In this case, you’ll need to get in touch with the device’s maker for more help.
