    I've never had this problem before, but today, I started getting the "the device has either stopped responding or is disconnected" error. But it only shows up if my phone isn't connected. It just pops up once in a while on its own. Things were working fine until today. Does anyone have any ideas about this? It looks like the message comes from something call SIhost, but that's a system file, so I can't just kill it.

    I've tried connecting the phone again, then doing a proper "Eject" on it before disconnecting the USB cable, but that didn't help.

    so you are disconnecting the phone from your PC and the error message shows?

    did you have an update? wondering if it's a new 'feature' that was added with an update...
    otherwise you could ask Samsung by reproducing the issue and submitting error report right after.

    No, that's the problem. I can disconnect the phone (unplug) from the computer just fine, and everything seems to be okay. But then a few hours later, or the next day, this error will suddenly pop up. I don't have a reliable way to reproduce the problem yet.

    I did get a second September update last week, but the problem only started yesterday.

    I can find a number of threads about this on the web, like this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport...onding_or_has/. Sounds like a Windows 10 bug.
