USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and USB 1.0 refer to the USB specification revision number from the USB Implementers Forum.
Please read the entire post & the comments first & create a system restore point before making any changes to your system.
Hi, Recently i noticed that my computer does not automatically searches and installs the drivers for Plug-n-Play devices (with no user input), like USB drives, ETC.
So I updated all my drivers using driver booster 3 and before I did so, I created a restore pointso after updating all my drivers, my mouse suddenly stopped working so after restarting and trying to rollback both my usb drivers : "usb xhcl compliant host controller" and "intel(r) usb 3.0 extensible host controller 1.0 (microsoft)"but rollingback did nothing, and they both give me this error when i click on properties: "A driver (service) for this device has been disabled.
An alternate driver may be providing this functionality.
I couldn't figure it out so I ended up paying a lot of $$ for one of these online companies that did nothing more than remove and re-install the drivers. Additional items, separated by semikolons, are ok but '%System Root%\inf' has to be one of them.
When the USB detects an additional it attempts to install the driver but errors out. Then delete the file C:\WINDOWS\inf\infcache.1 - XP will recreate it.
I agree that the windows port doesn't seem to be correctly configured. I will remove the non-working driver, and try to install after a minimal win7 boot (in case there is a conflict with other drivers on the system).
Still no success after reinstallation of the m BED_Serial_16466 driver. It could also be Microsoft's WHQL (driver signing..) is not letting you install the driver..
"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The INF folder and the infcache.1 file are 'hidden'. Your post is printed out and now stuck on my office wall for use in the future. Thanks Dan2600, I had exactly the same symptoms on a PC and it was resolved simply by the Device Path change you suggested.
To see them in the Windows Explorer: Menu 'Tools' - 'Folder Options'Tab 'View', mark 'show hidden files and folders'If it still doesn't work after a restart, the files in C:\WINDOWS\inf might be corrupt. Another thing to check is if the values 'Factory Pre Install In Progress' and 'Audit In Progress' are set to '1' under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setupand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Factory. My apologies for bumping a zombie thread, but I've been wrestling with this all weekend and finally found this. Microsoft needs to add this to their article about uninstalling the root hubs. I had been trying in vain to work this one out as I hate re-installing just for the sake of it. I also was not able to install or use any usb devices in any of my 3 usb ports.
I installed the mbed USB serial port driver onto a Windows 7 64bit PC. If you can't see the port in Terra Term, then the port probably doesn't exist on the system.
