Windows 7: Windows 7 unload driver/disconnect usb before restart

28 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 unload driver/disconnect usb before restart

In xp, my Tascam US 122 usb audio interface works fine.
On my windows 7 computer the device works, however when i restart/shutdown it hangs at the "shutting down" screen forever.
If the usb cable is removed prior to initiating restart/shutdown then everything goes fine, the computer restarts as normal.
This is a known problem, running any other driver in compatibility mode doesnt fix the problem.
Is there a method I can use to unload the device/drivers so that I dont have to reach round physically and disconnect the cable. Somebody suggested a spdt switch on the cable itself, but I am looking for a simpler method. Surely I can automate the unloading of the device through a script or such?

Any ideas are greatly welcomed thanks

Hey, I am having EXACTLY the same problem.

If you have found a solution, please help me out. Does your sound kind of cut out occasionally as well, just when listening through media player or youtube? If I'm on a tune through Cubase, it seems to work fine though.

Thanks, good luck finding a solution. I'll let you know if I find one too.
