    Forcing Windows to recognize USB devices on different ports

    With a lot of USB devices windows will force you to install the drivers again if you plug into a different port. Short of plugging every device into every port and installing the driver each time, is there a way to force windows to reuse the driver? Gets annoying when Im messing around with my install and it asks me to install the software....again.

    not that i know of. You can show windows your system32 folder when it asks for the new drivers but thats hit or miss. The easier thing would be to label ur usb wires and ports so you plug them in the same place everytime.
