    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Usually this problem shouldn't come if your USB ports are empty which means without any other connection but as you have already connected 2 USBs in your system it might be a clash between them where it failed to get resumed back.

    One more important cause for this problem is that, whatever you tried to plug-in might not get recognized because proper drivers are not present with Windows 8 OS. Just follow the below mentioned points to check if you can fix this problem,

    -> Try to get the proper drivers for the USB device which you are trying to insert in Windows 8, install the drivers and then try again.
    -> Remove all the USB connections and plug-in the one which is not working and check if it is working or some connection problem.
    -> If you have already plugged it then unplug it and wait for sometime and then again plug it into the system.
    -> Still if it is not working then restart the machine with the pen drive plugged in the port.

    If you can make sure about the above mentioned points then for sure your USB device will work with Windows 8.

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Hi friend,

    This USB problems occur very rarely.Whenever you not used the USB port carefully then you will face this type of problems.

    Do the below things for making USB to work and avoiding feature problems.

    ---> Once clean the USB port if any dust is there and use the port now.

    ---> Check the USB cable is working properly or not.

    ---> Update the USB port drivers once.

    ---> Once restart the system and check now recognizing or not.

    ---> Remove the USB cable and re insert again.


    Even if not recognizing the USB device then contact the windows 8 system.

    Thank you...............

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    hi,
    the problem may be caused because of clash between ur usb slots.as u have already two usb inserted so therefore there might have been a clash between ports.

    the other problem may be that tthe usb drive or any other thing that u want to insert mjght not be working properly.or it must have been infected with virus or corrupted.
    also the problem may be of drivers,make sure that u have all the required reivers installed for that usb devide.

    make sure that there is no unwanted particle in the usb port or in the device.
    if still not working then remove all the usb coonections.insert that device which was not working then insert oyher decices.
    if not unable to open,reboot the system and try again.
    good day!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Reasons behind your issue are,

    1:IN-compatible drivers

    2:NOT working ports

    3:Hardware changes in your system

    Solutions,

    1:First of all, update your present usb drivers with the latest supported drivers in device manager

    UN-supported drivers will also lead to the same issue!

    2:Check whether your all ports are working properly or not with out any worries

    NOT working will lead to same situation and lead to device UN-availability

    3:Check that you have made any hardware changes

    Hardware changed will lead to Some divers to crash and becomes not responding for sometimes !

    Check all the above requirements then your problem will be solved!

    Hard ware problems

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii


    As windows 8 is new so old devices like bluetooth dongle etc don't work because these are made for limited OS

    so i would recommend you to download the latest version of that device and install it in your PC

    then restart your PC

    then insert the device in your USB slot it will work.

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    There may be many reasons of it :

    Driver is not updated.
    so update your driver.

    Port is not working.
    Try it in another port.

    If the problem continues, uninstall the current driver, download your driver and again install it.

    Hope this may help you.

    the device is not recognized by the windows8 as the driver software is of old version
    so download the latest version of driver to use the device
    simply download it from windows update and install it
    then restart your PC
    and after restarting your PC insert your device
    it will surely work

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Hello there !!!

    please do check that the usb you are inserting into the port is actually
    the usb port and not the another kind of port like : HDMI port,SATA port etc.

    since inserting your usb into the port other than the usb port will throws out
    this kind of error message only.

    also do check that your usb device is not damaged.
    and try to insert into other port to check whether it works in other port in which your keyboard or
    mouse is connected.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Re: USB Device not recognized problem with Windows 8

    Dear friend,

    Pen Drives are easily detected by any Windows OS.

    But if it is not detecting it, then there may be certain issues related to it:

    >> Check whether Pen Drive is working properly or not. If not, then your Windows is alright and there is defect in your Pen Drive.

    >> May be Windows 8 is not getting appropriate drivers for that Pen Drive. So, you must install the appropriate drivers for Pen Drive in Windows OS. Then, it will surely recognize your Pen Drive.
