Prevent W7 Switching Audio Device When Connecting/Disconnecting USB De

Hi,

Everytime I connect or disconnect a USB device my default audio device changes to a different device.. anyway to prevent disable this from happening.. I use USB mostly to charge my smartphone and only occasionally to transfer files but it is an annoyance as not only I have to change the default device but have to restart flashplayer or videos on media players because it can't recover from change.

is your phone capable of being a DAC if not it should not be changing your playback options at all. that's odd what is your phone? does it do it when you just plug in any flash drive, and what is it changing your playback device to?

My phone is HTC Desire but it also occurs with USB Flash Drives.. It changes from Line1 to SRS Audio Sandbox

did you install srs sandbox it seems to be a software EQ. also why are you using line 1 vs your speakers what does line 1 go to?

Yeah, I use SRS Audio Sandbox in combination with Claesson Edwards Breakaway which is shown as Line 1. I use headphones 95% of the time so I like the added depth, bass and simulated surround sound from equalizers. Line 1 (Breakway) outputs to SRS Audio Sandbox which then outputs to Realtek HD Audio Output. I can't recall if Windows 7 behaved like this prior to installing the Audio Enhancement software but I plan to fresh format soon so I guess I'll find out
