I have noticed that on occasion, without any good reason, that my USB devices will start “connecting” and “disconnecting”. This is evidenced by the annoying windows sounds “windows xp hardware insert.wav” and “windows xp hardware remove.wav” alternately sounding off.
The computer starts this annoying ping-pong sound game of the device connecting and disconnecting.
It is enough to drive you crazy.
It should be noted that the devices are fully plugged in and turned on.
About the only way to cure this is to unplug the offending device. Plugging it in later seems to “correct” this problem, for a while.
Any ideas on what is going on???
