Strangely its been connected now for almost the past hour.  Very odd....

I'm getting this too with a QHY5III 174 USB 3. Dont think its the hardware, think its PHD2.

OK Update time -  decided to move the GPCam off the Powered D-Link USB Hub and direct to a USB port on the front of the PC.  So far its been up and running for about 3 hours looping on a 1.5s exposure - hasn't tripped out.

Will remain to be seen if this is just lucky or the gremlins are asleep. Tonight I'll try guiding via EQMOD with all the system loaded up and see if it carries on working.
