If your laptop or PC cannot detect your iPhone or Android phone, it could be because you are missing the compatible drivers. Special Android / IOS software known as a Mobile Driver is needed to get your mobile device to properly communicate with your laptop or PC. Sometimes the problem occurs after upgrading to a new mobile device, although even updating the software or apps on your current mobile device will sometimes require an upgrade to the mobile driver on your PC.
Many Mobile problems can be fixed by updating the drivers. After you upgrade to Windows 10, problems can occur because your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows. There are two ways you can update your Mobile drivers.
Option 1: Update drivers manually - Use DriverGuide to find the correct driver for your device and operating system. Next, download and install it by following the step by step instructions. You’ll need average to intermediate level computer skills to use this method.
Option 2 (Recommended): Update drivers automatically - Even computer newbies can update drivers with just a few clicks of a mouse. Use trusted software to identify, download and install the newest driver updates for your PC in one step. Your old drivers can be backed up and restored if you encounter any problems. You’ll need novice to beginner level computer skills to use this method.
To get the latest driver, including Windows 10 drivers, you can choose from our list of most popular Mobile downloads or search our driver archive for the driver that fits your specific Mobile model and your PC’s operating system.
Once you have downloaded the new driver, next you must remove the current driver if it is installed. On a Windows PC, you do this by using a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices attached to the PC, and the drivers associated with them.
In Windows 8.1 & Windows 10, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager
In Windows 8, swipe up from the bottom, or right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "All Apps" -> swipe or scroll right and choose "Control Panel" (under Windows System section) -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager
In Windows 7, click Start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager
In Windows Vista, click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager
In Windows XP, click Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager button
The mobile driver should typically be located under a category called "Universal Serial Bus controllers" or "Portable devices."
Locate the device that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.
Click the Driver tab.
Click the Uninstall button and follow the instructions.
To reinstall, you can either insert the disk you have from the manufacturer, or run the installer you have downloaded onto your computer and follow the instructions.
If you want to just update the driver instead of removing it, you can click the Update Driver button on the Properties window, and follow the instructions.
If you do not have the skill level or time to update your drivers manually, or are having difficulty finding the correct driver, you can do it automatically with the Mobile Driver Update Utility.
This utility is an intelligent program which will automatically recognize your computer operating system and device. Then, it will find the correct drivers for it. There is no need to know which specific operating system you have, and there is no risk of downloading and installing the wrong driver. Automatic driver updates eliminate mistakes when installing or updating drivers.
You can scan for driver updates automatically with the FREE version of the software, and complete all necessary driver updates with the premium version.
Run the driver update utility and click the green Scan Now button. Your system will be scanned and automatically detect any problem drivers.
After the scan is complete, the utility will display a results page similar to the one below:
Click the Download button next to the out-of-date or missing driver. The correct version will be downloaded and installed automatically. Or, you can click the big green Download All button to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out-of-date on your system.
