Compaq laptop refuses to recognise or install usb devices

Last Modified: 2017-12-28
Compaq PC running Win 10 home edition (upgraded from Win7 ) refuses to recognise  some ( not all ) previously installed USB devices ( iPhones, printers, HDD, thumb drive, cameras etc) From reading online appears to be linked to Media Transfer Protocol which does exist in the Windows INF folder. Have tried un-installing/re-installing these devices, updating drivers nothing seems to work. Utterly out of ideas of how to fix. Any assistance would be appreciated
