    Unknown Device (WsAudioDevice_383S(1)) after Anniversary Update

    Just completed anniversary update and I find Device Manager shows one "Other Device": "Unknown Device", with Hardware ID of "WsAudioDevice-383(1)". From other research I gather this is connected with Realtek Audio. Update Driver doesn't work!

    Only 2 of my 5.1 speakers appear to be working (by testing in Realtek HD Audio Manager) and I am not hearing other Windows sounds like USB Device Connecting/Deconnecting.

    (Apologies if this is posted elsewhere... I looked but did not find!)

    Any ideas?


    UPDATE: Resolved my audio problems by updating Realtek High Definition Audio drivers through Device Manager. Then got rid of the unknown device by uninstalling it, then re-scanning for hardware changes. It did not re-appear!
