Hi,

Try this 1.

Solution 1:

Turn off your computer---> un-plug the power cord of your computer for about 15 minutes-->plug the power cables back--->Switch ON your computer.

The reason is the windows keeps the USB devices cache stored in some chip.
When some entry goes wrong, it remains there and sometimes will not get flushed even on shutting down the your computer. So removing the power cord for few mins results in discharge completely and the entries are freshly created.

Solution 2:

Install your USB drivers.

Solution 3 :

Just click on the below link
