Windows 7: Renaming Controller Information for USB Headset

Renaming Controller Information for USB Headset

Hi Everyone,

Not sure if this can be done, but everytime I have to unplug a usb headset, it creates a "new" headset. I.E. 2- Logitech USB Headset, 3- Logitech USB Headset, etc

Is there anyway to have it not add a "new" headset each time or is there a way to be able to rename these "new" headsets ?

Scott does it say installing software or not? If not if you look up the Logitec site for that model headset and se if there is a driver it might stop this problem.
Let us know what model it is mate anyway.

Would not go amiss for you to run these too

It doesn't say it's installing software. The headset is the Logitech H390
