What are USB Drivers & Why would you need them?
USB drivers are a set of programs that allow your PC to communicate with your Realme smartphone’s operating system over a USB connection. It is required in order to transfer files to or from your phone over MTP, sync data, when working with Android ADB and Fastboot tools, or while flashing the stock firmware using the Realme Flash Tool.
Normally, modern-day computers running Windows 10 can automatically fetch and install these USB drivers when you connect your phone to the PC. However, that’s not always the case, especially with older versions of Windows like Windows 8.1/8, Windows 7, or Windows XP.
So, if your PC cannot recognize your Realme smartphone over a USB connection, it probably means that the required USB drivers are missing or not installed properly. And that’s when you’d need to download the Realme USB drivers from here and manually install them on your PC.

How to Install Realme USB Drivers on Windows?
Just like Google’s official Android USB drivers, these drivers come in the form of a Windows software information file (.inf format). So, these must be manually installed on your Windows PC through the Device Manager. To install these drivers, follow the instructions below.
Step 1: First, download the ZIP file of the latest Realme USB drivers on your PC.
Step 2: Extract the downloaded ZIP file to a suitable location on your PC using an archive tool like 7-Zip, WinRAR, etc. The extracted “usb_driver” folder should contain the driver software information file (android_winusb.inf) and other required binaries.
Step 3: Now, connect your Realme smartphone to the PC using a USB cable.
- If you’re working with ADB for app or software debugging, then make sure that you have enabled USB debugging on your phone.
- On the other hand, if you’re working with Fastoot for flashing things like TWRP recovery, Magisk boot image, etc, then make sure that your phone is in Fastboot Mode.
Step 4: Go to the ‘Control Panel’ on your Windows PC and launch the ‘Device Manager’. An alternative way is to press WIN + R keys and enter ‘devmgmt.msc’ in the Windows Run box.
Step 5: Locate your connected Realme smartphone under the ‘Portable devices’ or ‘Other devices’ section. Without the proper USB drivers, you should see a yellow triangular icon with an exclamation mark as shown in the figure below.
Step 6: Right-click on your device name and select ‘Update driver’. This will launch the Update Driver Wizard on your Windows PC.
Step 7: When prompted “How do you want to search for drivers?”, choose “Browse my computer for drivers”. Then click on ‘Browse’ and select the ‘usb_driver’ folder that you extracted earlier.
Step 8: With the driver location selected, click on ‘Next’ to finally install the Realme USB drivers on your Windows PC.
After the driver installation finishes, restart your PC. Now when you connect your Realme smartphone to the PC via a USB cable, it will be properly recognized by the PC.
It’s worth noting that the phone is identified as the following in different modes:
- <device name>: When MTP mode, USB tethering, etc is turned ON
- Android Composite ADB Interface: When USB debugging is enabled or the phone is in recovery mode
- Android Bootloader Interface: When the phone is in Fastboot Mode for flashing
You can now go ahead and transfer files using MTP mode, use ADB for debugging, or fastboot for flashing firmware files and custom binaries.
That’s it! If you have any questions regarding the Realme USB drivers provided on this page or the installation instructions, please feel free to let us know.
