I recently opened Device Manager and discovered an Unknown Device. Expansion of the Device reveals the following,
USB Storage-CFC
USB Storage-MSC
USB Storage-SDC
USB Storage-SMC.
Opening the properties of Unknown Device reveals the following - "Device Error, Windows could not load the installer for WPD. Contact your Hardware vendor for assistance. I am not aware of any failure and I do not understand what WPD was. I am unable to uninstall the Device. Help please
