    Windows pretty much did the right thing for once and I didn't have to do anything other than remove the USB root hub so it could reinstall itself.
    Yes, it's good like that. Seems I was on the right track in post #2, just targeting the wrong driver

    Well, running applications on the background probably had nothing to do with your problem. I guess some driver was updated and fixed your issue. The "Device Error" after you eject (but not remove) the device sounds reasonable. Windows can no longer access the device because you ejected it (but did not remove yet), hence the error.

    Absolutely 100% correct my friend. I just went the long way to find out.

    It's my fault though, because I could've been more elaborate in how I was explaining the problem.
