    After 12-24 hours of operation I lose USB hub connection.
    Checking Task Manager I get an error message:"USB Mass storage device-Windows cannot load a device driver because there is a duplicate device already running in the system(code 42)"
    I have to restart my computer in order to get it functional. How do I solve this problem??
    Thank you,

    A duplicate device was detected. This error occurs when a bus driver incorrectly creates two identically named children (bus driver error), or when a device with a serial number is discovered in a new location before it is removed from the old location.

    Restart the computer.

    On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
