Failed to read descriptor from node connection: A device attached to the system is not functioning. (0x1F) When trying to execute Selenium with Python

  python, selenium

I’m executing a very simple selenium call:

from selenium import webdriver
driver_path = r"C:Windowschromedriver.exe"
url = "http://www.google.com"
driver = webdriver.Chrome(driver_path)
driver.get(url)

Although the browser opens and navigates to the location, I’m getting a really strange error:

[9232:7300:1130/164722.426:ERROR:device_event_log_impl.cc(211)] [16:47:22.426] USB: usb_device_handle_win.cc:1020 Failed to read descriptor from node connection: A device attached to the system is not functioning. (0x1F)

I’ve not encountered this before, it’s literally started happening today. I’ve had a good browse trying to find a solution but the closest thing I’ve found is this answer: Failed to read descriptor from node connection: A device attached to the system is not functioning error using ChromeDriver Chrome through Selenium

But it just states that it can be ignored, well that’s not the best option..

The error holds control of the console until you hit enter, so if I have anything else being called after the python script it’s just going to hang.

Does anyone at all have any idea why this has started happening all of a sudden?
