    Is it connected right to the usb port or do you have an extension cable in between the two?

    Long runs can cause power drop which will wreak havoc with usb devices. I had the same issues with usb devices until I put a powered hub in the front of the car.

    Good luck

      You might need to pull the good old devcon.exe trick or the like. This simply disables your device before sleep/hibernate and enables it after resume.

      CarPC v1.2 is now in effect. Software updates and hardware additions to come.
