    If you are a Mediatek phone user and want to install recovery or root or install stock firmware on Mediatek phone then you must have to use the SP Flash tool. SP Flash tool will not recognize a Mediatek phone connected to a Windows 7 PC unless Mediatel USB VCOM Drivers are installed.

    I have created this post because people have been asking how to install Mediatek USB VCOM drivers on a Windows 7 PC. Make sure you go through the guide complete to be able to install the Mediatek VCOM driver auto installer.
