How to fix Code 43 Error?

Hello smart community

I need your help as I am recently getting code 43 error. Windows tells me "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems"

I have tried the method of switching off the PSU, unplugging the computer, removing all usb devices connected to the computer, leaving it in this state for at least 10 minutes, turning it back on, and then adding all USB devices back one-by-one. Still I get this message. Its the same for these 2 USB devices no matter which port I put them in.

I have also tried uninstalling each usb device in Device Manager then rebooting, yet still same issue for these 2 usb devices. This problem came out of nowhere and I really have no idea what more I can do to fix it. I also read this thread: USB Hub gets code 43 error - Windows 7 - Microsoft Community

but following the method provided in the answer and still got this problem.

I am running W7 64-bit

Any ideas?

Removing all non-present devices and the entries those left in the registry may resolve your problem.

Perform a drive cleanup as outlined here USB Thumb Drives not recognised (not drive letter)

Let us know whether it resolved your problem.

Unfortunately it hasn't fixed my problem.

When I plug the USB devices back in I get the 'USB Device Not Recognized Error' for both of them still.

EDIT: And I should mention I also get 'Device driver software was not successfully installed- Unknown device failed'

Okay very quick update

I managed to somehow solve it by switching off the device and plugging out the usb cable that goes from the device to the computer. I even get the driver has been succesfully installed message- but, as soon as I open an application where this usb device is used it doesn't work in the application and then windows recognises it as an unknown device again....

It is not a generic hardware problem.

I would think that you should post your query in the Gaming Subforum.

If you do so, post with full details on the game you had installed and as to what exactly you are trying to do with the pen drives including the source material.
