If so, also provide your OS, what software (Audacity is common) and whether or not a driver for the device was installed. As well, how a USB driver is installed can be important. I've seen your issue with USB printers which didn't have the driver installation sequenced properly and continue to give "found new hardware" even though the driver is there. The need is to uninstall and reinstall in the proper sequence.
Is it possible to remove (and if so how) the annoying message (Found New Hardware, or some such) that now appears every time I start up. It's only begun since I installed equipment that allows me to convert LPs (yes, I'm that ancient) and audio cassettes to digital files. Other hardware like a printer and scanner that I installed months ago did not result in this attack! Thanks in advance for any help.
