Windows 10: Devices no longer appear on "This PC" after upgrading Win8 to Win10

    Devices no longer appear on "This PC" after upgrading Win8 to Win10


    My external hard disks , and one MP3 player (all USB devices) are no longer recognized, nor appear on "This PC", after I upgraded my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 OS. Other devices, such as my Android phone USB connection still works well. I made sure that the "Automatic download of driver software for devices" is turned on in the Device Installation Setup. Any idea how to solve this problem?

    Hi there,


    That looks like a driver problem. I would suggest that you manuallysearch for the latest available USB and chipset drivers from yourmotherboard manufacturer web site. Good luck.

    TechpumpkinWD , Thank you for your reply.


    Please note that I do see some devices (printer, vellphone as mass storage) but not others.
    How do I know which motherboard I have in my Dell Inspiron?

    Thanks again,
