MSC Driver


Mcs Drivers Disk

Be default, Windows 7 automatically installs drivers for the devices that are connected to the computer. However, if you do not want Windows 7 to automatically install the drivers, you can use one of the methods listed in this article.

Microsoft OS 2000/XP and beyond are released with built-in Mass Storage class (MSC) driver. So no other driver is required for mass storage compliant devices to work on these OS. For enhancing the functionality of EZ-USB parts like FX2/FX2LP/AT2/AT2LP, when used in MSC compatible applications, Cypress offers this proprietary driver. Tech support scams are an industry-wide issue where scammers trick you into paying for unnecessary technical support services. You can help protect yourself from scammers by verifying that the contact is a Microsoft Agent or Microsoft Employee and that the phone number is an official Microsoft global customer service number.

Methods 1: Change device installation setting

  • MSC is a set of protocols for managing communication between USB storage devices and operating systems. This is protocols set used for USB flash drives, external hard drives and card readers. Sansa players in MSC mode are seen by Windows and Mac systems as removable drives.
  • GENERIC USB Storage-MSC USB Device - Driver Download. Vendor:. Product: GENERIC USB Storage-MSC USB Device. Hardware Class.
  • Technically, diskmgmt.msc isn't the 'Disk Management command' any more than any non command-line tool's executable is a 'command.' In the strictest sense, diskmgmt.msc is just the Run command for the program.
  1. Click Start, type devices and printers in the search box, and then click Devices and Printers.

  2. All the devices connected to the computer are listed, including monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, and so on.
    Under Devices, right-click the icon for the computer, and then click Device installation settings.

  3. A new window pops up asking you whether you want Windows to download driver software.
    Click to select No, let me choose what to do, select Never install driver software from Windows update, and then click Save Changes.

  4. Click Yes when you are prompted for confirmation.

Methods 2: Configure group policy settings

Note This method only applies to Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, and Windows 7 Enterprise.

  1. Click Start, type gpedit.msc in the search box, and then press ENTER. This step opens the Local Group Policy Editor.
    (Click Yes if you are prompted.)

  2. Expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, expand Device Installation, and then click Device Installation Restrictions.
    In the right window, double-click Prevent installation of devices not described by other policy settings.

  3. Click to select Enabled, and then click OK.

  4. Restart the computer.


There are two USB modes used for connecting to MP3 players to computers:

• Mass Storage Class (MSC)
• Media Transfer Protocol (MTP)

Windows systems support both MSC and MTP mode. Mac systems only support MSC mode.
MTP mode is the preferred method for connecting to Windows systems because it supports more features for transferring content to players. These features include creating playlists, setting up autosync, transferring DRM-protected content (licensed, copy protected) and album art linking.

Current Sansa players also have a third menu selection for Auto-detect. Auto-detect will connect in MTP mode when it detects a Windows system. For all other connections, it will connect in MSC mode.

*See answer ID 207 on how to change the Sansa player from MSC to MTP mode or vice-versa.
Mass Storage Class (MSC)
USB specifications define MSC as a standard for connecting removable drives. MSC is a set of protocols for managing communication between USB storage devices and operating systems. This is protocols set used for USB flash drives, external hard drives and card readers. Sansa players in MSC mode are seen by Windows and Mac systems as removable drives.
MSC mode provides Plug and Play support for current Windows and Mac systems:

• Driver support is native in WIN XP, Vista and WIN 7
• Driver support is native in Mac OS 9.1+
• No special drivers required for installation with current systems

Note: MSC mode can be used to test connectivity when having problems using MTP mode.

Media Transfer Protocol (MTP)
MTP is a protocol developed by Microsoft to connect portable devices to a Windows PC and synchronize digital media content between them. MTP facilitates the transfer of media files and associated metadata to/from devices. Applications like Windows Media Player rely on MTP for management of media files and configuration data when transferring content to portable devices. MTP provides the following features:

Playlists, Album Art, Metadata
• WMP, Rhapsody, Napster (and other apps) can sync playlists
• Link album art and other features from metadata
• Changes to metadata properties, such as ratings, can be communicated when the file is synchronized
AutoSync Option

• Windows Media Player can be configured to automatically manage the transfer of content to an MTP-compatible device upon connection.
• Automatically sync playlists and changes
DRM Support
• MTP provides support for transferring DRM (copy protected) licensed content
• Supports Programs that transfer of subscription-based music content (e.g. Rhapsody, Napster)
• Supports programs that transfer of copy protected licensed audiobooks (e.g. Audible, OverDrive)

Device Limitation Management

• Using MTP, a PC can detect a compatible device’s capacity limitations as well as the file types it is capable of supporting.
Portable Device Status
• MTP-compatible devices appear as Portable Devices in the Windows Explorer and do not require “safe removal” or drive letter assignment.

MTP Minimum System Requirements:
Windows XP SP2 and WMP 10 (or higher)
• MTP protocols first introduced in WMP 10
• Windows XP comes with WMP 9, requires update to WMP 10 or 11
• Windows Vista comes with WMP 11
• Windows 7 comes with WMP 12

Msc Driver For Windows 10

Note: WIN XP comes with WMP 9 by default. This is a common problem with Sansa player being detected on WIN XP. SanDisk recommends upgrading to WMP 11.
