As the title states. Trying to connect a external optical drive, and gets the following message;
The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows does not recognise it.
USB port(s); Functions
Optical Drive; Functions (checked on a laptop)
Has worked before on this computer!
The optical drive is a; LiteOn eBAU108 (I know that this drive isn't offically for windows 10 but has worked before all the same on this computer)
What I have tried so far;
Unplugged power-cord from PC, re-plug and restart
Tried different USB ports (6 in total)
Looking for driver through the error message in device manager where it is listed as; "Unknown USB device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)"
Searched for LiteOn firmware update (none that I could find)
Disabled Fast StartUp in power options
Edit: Disabled USB selective Suspend setting
Edit: Uninstalled Hidden entry in Device manager
I haven't tried re-installing the Universal Serial Bus Controller or anything of that nature, as mouse/keyboard and headphones are all USB connected.Nor have I touched the reg-file system.
I suspect some pesky windows update might have done it in for me regarding this drive, as it has worked before with no problems.
If you need further info, do tell and I'll provide it.
