How to Manually Download & Install MT65xx (MediaTek) USB VCOMM drivers on Windows

Installing a USB VCOMM drivers on windows is one of the most essential aspect in the process of flashing your Android MTK Device either by using SP Flashtool or any other flashing software because without the drivers in place you can't be able to connect your device successfully. Now in this guide i will like to discuss concisely on the method you will use to install USB Vcomm Drivers on your windows PC, had it been windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10.

The installation process is much more simpler if you heed me your attention because it is the most initial step to take before proceeding to repair your device by sp flashtool or similar software in question.

Download+Guide on How to manually install MT65xx (MediaTek) USB VCOM drivers on Windows

Make sure you have a good working pc and your device with a good USB Cord to proceed with the installation but before you begin download the USB VCOMM Drivers HERE

How to Install Vcomm Drivers on windows PC


After initially downloading the software, now extract the software on your PC


Now simply go to control panel and open device manager

Click any of the device groups (any of the items on the list) you see there, then from Action menu at the top, select Add legacy hardware

the Hardware wizard will pop, click next

Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) and click Next

Click Next
Click Have Disk
Click Browse and go to where you extract the file you downloaded above... 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
* If you're using a Windows 8 PC then install the Windows 7 drivers

Click Open and OK. You will see the drivers listed
Select your driver there (select Mediatek Preloader USB VCOM Port)  then Click Next
Click Next

Click Finish. Ignore the Code 10 error. You're getting it because you have installed an unsigned driver
Your drivers should now appear on the list. Ignore the yellow warning triangle. You're getting it because you have installed an unsigned driver
NB:If SP flash tool or other software still don't detect your phone then also install Mediatek DA VCOM (consider installing more from the list of drivers one at a time if need be) If you get the code 10 error after the installation, simply ignore it and proceed with SP flash tool. You're only getting that error because the driver is not digitally signed.
