I have a flaky USB device which I am stuck with. Don't ask.
Anyways, in windows I get a bunch of Usb unrecognized device sometimes and then sometimes it just works. I do have a 500 mA powered hub, so its not a power issue.
The problem isn't that I sometimes don't get it to recognize as this is part of an automated process and I don't care if it just fails and tries again next time, the thing windows seems to disable a usb port after too many errors occur on it.
Has anybody run into this problem? Can you tell windows to just re-enable the port or prevent it from being disabled in the first place? Rebooting doesn't seem to help. You have to shut down and do a full power cycle.
I am running Windows XP
