The use of USB devices in Windows 10 grows more every day thanks to the different tasks that we can perform with them. It is possible to store information, configure them as an extra storage medium for the local computer and some other tasks, but there is a possibility that when connecting the USB medium to the computer we will see the descriptor request error..
Remember that when connecting any storage medium in Windows, the NTFS file system must have access to the descriptor (or name) of the medium in order to display it correctly in File Explorer and thus be able to work comprehensively on the medium. This error can be caused by failures in the USB itself or in the system configuration.
TechnoWikis will explain how to correct this error and thus work entirely with the USB. Below you will see all the steps you must follow to solve this problem in two different ways..
