I recently bought an new computer, windows 8. All works fine, except that ones in a while (randomly, this can happen after a few seconds - a few minutes), I get a device connected notification. This problem is already mentioned here: Windows 8 constantly plays the Device Connect sound (No solution however).
My additional problem is that whenever this sound is played, any app that produces sound at that moment (i.e. video/music) is muted. The volume status says everything is fine, the movie or music continues to play, but no sound. Restarting that app solves the problemn
I have tried to simply disable the sound notification for device connetivity, as well as disabling all system-notification sounds, but the problem remains.
