Sounds like one of the devices is affecting the usb ports, try them in different orders to find out which one is causing them issue and or try different usb cables

Also please post in the correct forum, this has been moved for you.

Do you use a DMX terminator?
Those things fix lots of problems too.

A USB-powered hub would be my guess.

Perhaps your devices are pulling too much power from the laptop usb ports and the enttec open is known to be very sensitive to noise and power issues.

Make sure you have your COM ports set correctly if your using mulitple USB ports. It can interfere with things if not.
