Default Reaper and X-Air USB errors


I am using Reaper and XR18 connected via USB to Win10 laptop. I have upgraded the XR18 to most recent firmware and have installed the most recent USB drive V4.49 YET almost everytime I start Reaper it gives me an error message about not being able to find find the audio device; its very frustrating. It sometimes takes hours to ge it to recognize the usb device (XR18 console) and when I click on the X-Air USB app it says "no device connected"... uninstall/reinstall ... disable all other Win10 audio devices ... reboot ... all of these in different combinations ... it is just not reliable in any way. Last night I had a great session then this morning turn it on and get my error message!!

Can anyone please help?

I have one of these two but havent used the USB driver much except to test it for my comparison page. It seemed to be very similar to the X-USB driver on my Midas M32. I haven't really had too much trouble with the driver not showing up on the M32, but often I could lose the driverand need to be reboot dependiong on what else I'm using besodes reaper. I dont think you should be seeing this problem. I wonder if thats just a bad unit.
