[Tutorial] How to install Mediatek USB VCOM drivers

#1
(This post was last modified: 05-24-2018, 12:53 PM by hovatek. )

This step-by-step guide will explain how to manually install MT**** MediaTek USB VCOM drivers on a Windows PC. This procedure is universal so it'll work for all Mediatek devices whether Smartphone, Tablet, Smartwatch or GPS.

Why do I need to manually install Mediatek USB VCOM drivers?


First off, you need to install VCOM drivers to enable Mediatek Flash Tools detect your device. In a case where your Mediatek (MTK) drivers are unsigned or raw setup information .inf files (instead of .exe installer), you'll need to manually install the driver(s) in Device Manager. That is where this tutorial comes in.

  8. Click Browse... and locate your driver's .inf file then select it (the .inf you're to select is located in drivers > USB Vcom driver > your OS) . Ensure to select the 64 bit .inf if your PC is 64 bit and the other if your PC is a 32 bit PC

Important Notice
  • If you're using Windows 8 and above then install the Windows 7 drivers
  • You might run into a driver clash whereby Mediatek Flash Tools still don't detect your device despite having installed several Mediatek drivers. In such a case, uninstall all Mediatek drivers using USB Deview then re-install VCOM drivers
  • If you get the code 10 error after the installation, simply ignore it and proceed with flashing. You're only getting that error because the driver is not digitally signed
  • On some devices, you might experience a conneciton-disconnection sound while attempting to flash. This is sometimes due to an old or outdated driver. In such a situation, you need to update the phone's VCOM drivers
  • Drivers are Windows OS-specific so ensure to install the 64 bit version (x64) if yours is 64 bit and 32 bit version (x86) if yours is 32 bit

What OS is your PC running on? and is it 32 or 64 bit?
