If you see a Device Not Migrated message when you open the Properties of USB, External Drive, etc. in Device Manager on Windows, then try these suggestions:
1] Install or Update the device driver
As this problem mainly occurs due to driver compatibility, you should try installing or updating the device driver so that your existing device will be compatible with Windows 11/10. Although users may not need any driver for an external hard disk or USB ported mouse or keyboard, there are some old devices that need the driver to start working. So, if you haven’t installed the driver, you should install it right away. If you have installed the driver, check whether an update is pending or not. If yes, download and install it. You can also check these free driver update software to do things with ease.
