    I am hoping that somebody will be able to help me. Until recently I could install new hardware connected via USB ports no problem. However recently I have had problems installing mobile phones and more recently a USB Bluetooth stick.

    Having loaded the software I get the ‘found new hardware’ message box as you would expect but then I get an error message saying that

    ‘Cannot install this hardware

    There was a problem installing this hardware

    An error occurred during the installation of the device

    The data is invalid’.

    I can only think that there is a problem within my windows set up rather than with the individual hardware devices.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Did you ever try to install drivers before plugin usb devices or other usb port?
