How can I get Windows to just see my devices when I plug them in and be sure they will work via hubs?
I am using a notebook PC w/ Windows for the first time for some production purposes. I'm coming from Mac; there, I plug in all of my devices (Audio Interfaces, USB Cameras , Keyboards, Capture Cards, et al.) and everything works instantly without installing a bunch of stuff.
With windows I apparently cannot use some devices through a hub. When I plug something into a port, it installs software "drivers" that allow it to run. If I then plug it into a different USB Port than I used the last time, it will not work.
Everything is up to date; the Ports and Hubs are all USB 3.0, whereas the devices are all USB 2.
I need to use more devices than my notebook PC has ports for, and so this whole thing has been frustrating. I can't imagine that PC users in 2019 really have to install different software for every class-compliant device, and then must remember which specific port they used for each device, and cannot use hubs.
