With windows 10 (7 too in the past) after dis- and re- connecting external several USB devices, like hard-disks and memory sticks, occasionally i get some dropouts with my USB audio device.

Found this quite useful tool to remove inactive, unneeded, or even reset selected USB devices without having to switch them off, or even the need to reboot Windows in case of problems:

Nirsoft USB Deview -F

fiddler2007,

It never ceases to amaze me how some people will share their time and talent with others. Thanks for sharing that link with us. Also there is also a x64 version of the program available +++ HERE +++

Yes, I use this a lot. It is possible to see the same info in Control Panel, Device Manager by choosing to show hidden devices, but this interface is batter.

Matt, you probably use it in case of audio or USB transfer problems, as i had occasionally especially with audio. As mentioned in the other post: i was tipped to get me a Sonnet Allegro PRO USB 3.0 PCIe, expensive with it's 4x 3.0 buses, but more important: 4 separate Fresco controller chips, in stead of one as with most other & cheaper (4x) USB extension cards, f.i. like with the older or non pro sonnets. Up and running now, and it seems at least it solved my audio problems. -F

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
