Both "DEVICES & PRINTERS" and "DEVICE MANAGER" are referencing an unknown USB device as "Unknown Device".
I have made several attempt to delete this reference; including, using "Microsoft Fix-It," which is totally useless.
My best "Guesstimate" is something I did rather stupidly: attempting to connect a USB hub to another USB hub, increasing hub availability. Yes, I know, that was dumb. I have since removed the offending hub from the original hub. The original hub, which works fine, has several external HDs attached to it. If I remove the original hub, I lose access to the drives.
Please tell me there is a way to remove this "unknown device" from my PC. Otherwise, I will just "Disable" it in Device Manager. There has to be a better way.
Thank You. GadgetDude
