Well, that's kind of a hard question to answer...what appears in the Device Manager is...tons of stuff!?
What I can say though is that when it is connected, I have an SSCOM entry under the 'Sound, video and game controllers' section and a USB Composite that I've identified as being the SS under the 'Universal Serial Bus controllers' section because it disappears when the SS is unplugged.
Right now, I've just rebooted so I'm happy to have it working again and would prefer to get to work on it while it is staying connected so I'll let you know what's different from what I described above just as soon as it loses irremediably its connection again.
In the mean time, I've posted a new topic as well regarding volume control...if you've got the time to have a look
Cheers and thx again for the fast replies!
