Windows 7: Device driver software not successfully installed--OK, but which?

Device driver software not successfully installed--OK, but which?

Had a problem (user profile), so reverted to last usable configuration. Now I get a message that "device driver software was not successfully installed." That would be easier to fix if I knew which device was meant.

Device Manager shows two USB devices with exclamation marks, each marked "unknown device."

First one's status said "Windows has stopped this device beause it has reported problems. (Code 43). Searched for drivers and, after a long search, I got a message that "The best driver software for your device is already installed."

Second says "This device disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it the required resources. (Code 29). " Another long search, and I'm told the same thing?

Should I uninstall these drivers and trust them to reinstall themselves?

First thoughts would be the external hardrives.
Secondly W7 does not have any generic USB3 drivers.

The firmware problem will definately require a visit to the problem devices home page as firmware updates are not MS updated.

post the device id codes (unknown device), see screenshot
