Windows 10: USB Drive not showing up as connected device - Creators Update Problem

    USB Drive not showing up as connected device - Creators Update Problem

    So a while ago I detailed problems I was having with a usb device not showing up as connected on my main pc here: USB Drive (Media Player) failing to show up as connected device - Windows 10 Forums

    I had two other laptops both on Windows 10 where the device connected fine. Now a few weeks later I think I've figured out the possible culprit. Distinguishing factor that sticks out - my main PC had Windows Creator's Update build.

    Now that the two other laptops have gotten the upgrade, the same device that worked perfectly okay on both of them doesn't show up as connected. Same device shows up fine on my Macbook Air.


    Anyone else experiencing USB device issues post update? Any possible solutions?

    It would help to have you update what is the manufacturer and model of the laptop, what OS you had on it before. You would need to look in Device Manager to see if there are any devices in it that are showing problems. Also in the bios it you need to make sure that the USB is enabled.

    I have the same problem with a GPS Mio 686. The device normally appears as a USB key or hard disk and the software provided by the manufacturer (Mio More Desktop) use it to update the maps and do other things. With creators update, I have an error message saying that the device is not recognized and a problem in the device manager. Alternatively, it can appear as an empty drive. On other Windows versions, I had well an error message as a notification, but the device works nevertheless.

    At least for my device, the problem is documented on the manufacturer website:
