I have been having an issue that is difficult to troubleshoot. Google hasn't yielded me any results - probably since I have no idea how to search for this issue.
I have a new USB enabled Logitech headset and I have plugged it into various USB ports during its use. I have noticed that for some reason, each new USB port it is plugged into causes the name of the device under Playback/Recording devices window to add a numeric prefix. First it was 2-, then 3-, and right now I have it coming up as 9- while plugged into a monitor USB port. What is going on? I am becoming increasingly OCD about this issue and it's driving me insane.
I have tried uninstalling the driver, but sadly, I can only uninstall the driver while its plugged in. I want to know if there's a way to go in and remove all the drivers or references to this device so I can start fresh? I have tried the trick which allows you to view hidden devices - that doesn't help since there's only one driver. Perhaps it is a registry entry keeping track of all the 'different' devices named Logitech G930 Headset? If that's the case, it'd make sense that it would have to increment a number each time it thinks a DIFFERENT device with the same name is connected. But is there a way to just clear all of this data out? Picture of issue included.
TL;DR; how do I remove the number that keeps appearing in front of my headset's name? It changes depending on what USB port the headset is plugged into.
