What are Xiaomi USB Drivers?

Xiaomi USB drivers are a set of Windows programs that enable your computer to properly detect and communicate with your Xiaomi smartphone over a USB connection. You will need these USB drivers for transferring files to/from your phone over MTP, for flashing the stock firmware using Mi Flash Tool, and also for establishing an ADB or Fastboot connection for flashing a custom recovery, rooting, debugging apps/ROMs, etc.

Generally, your Windows computer (with the latest Windows OS version) would automatically recognize your Xiaomi device and install the required USB drivers for it. However, this doesn’t always work, especially on PCs running older Windows versions. Even if it does work, chances are that your computer might install an outdated USB driver that may not be compatible with the latest Xiaomi smartphones.
