  1. Improvements and fixes. This update includes a fix for an incorrect device driver (“Microsoft – WPD – 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM - 5.2.5326.4762”) that was released by a third-party on March 8, 2017 that affected a small group of users with USB connected phones or other media devices that rely on Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).
  2. For composite devices, use USB Generic Parent Driver (Usbccgp.sys) that creates physical device objects (PDOs) for each function. For non-composite devices or a function of a composite device, use WinUSB (Winusb.sys). If you are installing USB drivers: You do not need to download USB device class drivers. They are installed automatically.

This article helps to fix an issue in which Windows 10 doesn't install specific drivers for USB audio devices on the first connection.

Writing Linux USB device drivers is not a difficult task as the usb-skeleton driver shows. This driver, combined with the other current USB drivers, should provide enough examples to help a beginning author create a working driver in a minimal amount of time. The linux-usb-devel mailing list archives also contain a lot of helpful information. Check if the USB device is recognized on another laptop. If it is still not detected, it suggests that the.

Symptom

When you connect a USB audio device to a Windows 10 Version 1703-based computer the first time, the operating system detects the device but loads the standard USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) instead of the specific device driver.

Cause

This issue occurs because the USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) isn't classified as a generic driver in Windows 10 Version 1703. Therefore, the system assumes that a compatible, nongeneric driver is installed for the device even though the driver is generic.

This issue also causes Windows 10 Version 1703 to postpone the search for other compatible drivers through Windows Update that typically occurs immediately after you install a new device.

Resolution

To fix this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

Method 2

If the device-specific driver is distributed through Windows Update, you can manually update the driver by using Device Manager. For more information about how to do this, see update drivers in Windows 10.

Method 3

If the device is not yet connected, first install the device-specific driver, such as by using the appropriate installer. After the device-specific driver is installed, Windows 10 will select that driver instead of the standard USB audio 2.0 driver when you first connect the device.

Note

See the device manufacturer's user guide for specific instructions about how to install the driver.

Method 4

USB

If the driver isn't distributed through Windows Update, you can manually reinstall the driver. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Install the device-specific driver (see Method 2).
  2. Open Device Manager.
  3. Right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device, and then select Uninstall.
  4. Restart the computer.

When it restarts, Windows will try to reinstall the device by using the device-specific driver.

This topics in this section describe the class drivers, generic client driver, and the parent composite driver that are provided by Microsoft.

Microsoft-provided USB drivers for controllers and hubs

Microsoft provides these set of drivers:

  • For USB host controllers and hubs. For more information, see USB host-side drivers in Windows. You can develop a custom host controller driver that communicates with the USB host controller extension (UCX) driver. For more information, see Developing Windows drivers for USB host controllers.
  • For handling common function logic for USB devices. For more information, see USB device-side drivers in Windows.
  • For supporting Type-C connectors. For more information, see USB connector manager class extension (UcmCx).
