How to Fix MTP USB Device Driver (USB Device not configured correctly

Today, I connected my Android phone to my PC and I heard the USB connection sound but my phone’s storages weren’t detected (both Internal and SD card). This was rather weird as I’d used it fine a few days back. I checked under Device Manager and noticed that MTP had a warning icon (yellow triangle) on it meaning it had somehow malfunctioned. On right-clicking and selecting properties, I saw

This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)
A service installation section in this INF is invalid.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver

This could only mean that my Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) driver was corrupted.

How do I fix a corrupted or missing MTP USB Device Driver (USB Device not configured correctly)?

The fastest fix is to update the MTP driver software with the device still connected. The guide at https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15777.html explains this technique. If that doesn’t help, You’ll need to install the Media Transfer Protocol Porting Kit and
Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 depending on which your PC is running on. Also, ensure to download the 32 or 64 bit version depending on which your PC is running on.

How do I know if my PC is a 32 or 64 bit PC?

To check this, right-click My Computer (or This PC) and select Properties. You’ll find it in front of System Type.
