XP, got to love it.  It appears that you have unplugged and reinserted that device at least 4 times. Plug n play on XP is not that good and when your remove and reinstall a device from a USB port it reinstall it on another port even though it is the same device. The cure is to uninstall all of them and reboot and then plug device back in to reinstall and leave it in. Newer OSes are a bit better about this.

They are all active devices, all playing together, all the time, on Windows 7 64 bit.

K5TED's setup is not particularly unusual for a sophisticated hamradio setup.. I have 13 USB comports, 10 of which are in use and active all the time...... I could use all 13 at the same time if I wanted too. No problems, I have done it.

On my setup:

6 ports used for Navigator Digital Interface
1 for QS1R SDR
I for TS-590s ARCP control software
1 for Public Service Scanner control
1 for Cyberpower UPS monitoring software

3 others that are not used all the time.....
1 for Icom 7100 control software
1-Baofeng programming software
1- Blood Pressure Monitor Software

I use Win7/64.
