Definitely a strange 1 & it must be very frustrating for you indeed friend, sorry no suggestions have helped you at all
I'm just thinking as I said earlier that this is just 1 of those PC problems that will remain unexplained
I honestly feel your frustration as I have had a couple of similar problems exactly like this with USB & after trying everything me & fellow ADMINS could think of & the problem remained it is so annoying the not knowing part that it drives me for 1 mad as I always like to know about any PC problems & how to overcome them etc...
I just came to the above conclusions when we couldn't resolve the USB problems & IMHO actually think its down to the problem PC's motherboard somehow being faulty but still managing to pass any tests done to replicate issues etc...
In our house we have many PC's so if it was me I think I would just use 1 of the other PC's for transferring music to the C4 because it's too good a device to allow a PC problem to have you miss out on it's great Quality Sound friend, so if the PC problems remain perhaps borrow your son's Alienware Laptop to transfer music to it & use a 64gb MicroSDXC card friend for more space & then you can still use your own PC for that.
Here I use the C4's internal flash for 320kbp's Mp3's & use the 64gb microSDXC Card for uncompressed Flacs so I mostly just use the card for transferring as like most would I prefer the higher quality of the Flacs.
I know nothing I'm saying is helping with your PC's USB issue but IMHO friend the C4's way too good to let a PC problem deprive you of its great Quality Sound friend
