We have shared two different drivers’ files. The first one is for the automatic installation. You only need to launch the setup file and proceed with the on-screen instructions to install these drivers. On the other hand, the second driver file is for manual installation. In this, you will manually add the driver file to your PC via the Device Manager.

The first method is quite easy to execute and may initially try out that one. However, if that gives out any error, then don’t hesitate to try out the second method as well.  There’s another important point worth taking into consideration. The automatic driver installation process doesn’t require you to disable Windows drivers’ signature verification.

On the other hand, if you are opting for the manual installation, then you would have to disable the driver signature check as well (instructions for that are given as well). So keep these points in mind and then opt for the installation method of your choice.

Driver Compatibility

These drivers are compatible with all the MediaTek devices and are supported across Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10.
