Reconnecting USB Devices

3,458 Views
Last Modified: 2008-07-26
I'm using Win XP. USB devices can be disconnected by right-clicking the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the task bar and following direction in the resulting dialogue boxes. Is there a way to reconnect the device without unplugging and replugging it?

This works well. Is it possible to do this from the cmd window (DOS command)?
