Windows 7: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error

Hi, I am afraid I dont have an answer, I have noticed that certain devices seem to randomly revert the setting back to manual again. My GPS unit ALWAYS changes it, my camera and certain USB sticks will sometimes change it back to manual. I really have no solution other than keep chaning it back to automatic. I notice that on Windows 8, the default setting for the service is Automatic - Delayed Start, I have not tested it, but it might be worth trying this setting to see if it helps. It's a very odd thing, and probably just a strange Windows 7 quirk.

After having installed a Camera or installed an internal Usb Card Reader I found when i looked at my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\UMDF\(language-Language)


That there's some .mui files dedicated for the those drivers.

If you're looking now at the folder \UMDF\, you'll see is missing the .dll to match those .mui files. (Capture1.png)

I had for exemple for my internal USB Card Reader, to copy/paste the "WUDFUsbccidDriver.dll" in order it loads the driver when i do plug a SD Card. (Capture2.png)

After that it had recognized the SD Card in device manager as a generic USB device (Capture3.png).

My Card Reader use also Realtek Card Reader drivers, but i can still let the Microsoft generic Usb driver on place as the drivers versions are both similar for the card reader i do use with similar performances.

Now for the "WpdFs.dll" i do not have the "WpdFs.mui" associated to it, but in Services it is started but set to manual on mine, with time to time some errors in the Events Viewer.

I do suspect missing the WpdFs.mui for your language version being cause of some errors & also the WUDFRd . But when the service "Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework" is started, everythings work fine.

Hope this help!

I would like to thank you, this thread has now helped me on more than one occasion. Installed an SSD recently & forgot to make Windows Driver Foundation automatic.

The UMDF reflector was unable to complete startup because the WUDFPf service was not found. This service may be started later during boot, at which point Windows will attempt to start the device again.

Above suggestion appears to have once again fixed the problem.

Seven Forums is the most helpful forum I have come across for Windows 7 related issues.
Thanks again to all who contribute.

Just for the record, the fix about changing the setting in Services from Manual to Automatic worked for me too.

Thanks and regards,

In my case it was also an SSD (Adata brand). I would like to add one thing: please make sure your SSD has the latest firmware. This can avoid a lot of problems.

Update: it wasn't my SSD causing problems in my case, it was an external hard disk enclosure (basically a box in which you can put any hard disk):
Conceptronic Grab'n'Go CHD3SU - Storage enclosure - 3.5" - SATA-300 - USB 2.0
(link to their website: here)

The problem is I had set the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service to Automatic and everything worked fine, however, that external hard drive somehow set it back to Manual.

For now I have disconnected that external hard drive and everything seems to be fine.
