Windows 7: Kingston USB Drive/memory stick - "No driver found"

11 Sep 2013   #11

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

If it doesn't have any USB 3 ports looking for a USB driver likely won't help. I doubt you'll find any USB 2.0 drivers, they are part of the Windows install.

The Intel Driver Update Utility likely only looks for driver updates for Intel devices. If you USB controller is not an Intel device the utility will just ignore it.

One option is to go into device manager and delete/uninstall all the USB devices listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and Windows will reinstall them all again. At least it should. If you are using a USB keyboard and mouse they will become unusable when you do this. To shut down you may have to momentarily press your power button. Don't hold it down just tap it once momentarily.

Any more suggestions?

This BL**DY ridiculous. I thought memory sticks were supposed to be easy to use!
But I have now wasted over 2 hours just trying to get a memory stick working - which works absolutely fine on my other two PCs - to work on my Win7 PC.
