@Corina I had this issue over the summer and the solution was simply to reinstall the drivers. Thankfully, Windows keeps the a copy of the original driver installation files and so all you have to do is go into the device manager, right-click your "unrecognized device" and tell the computer to install the driver for it. I haven't had an issue since.
@sven thank you, I'll remember that in case it ever happens again. It's been a few days since I've had issues now, so I seem to be good, the problem dissapeared.
