USB controllers

I am still trying to get the Visor to sync with the Computer. The USB controllers are now my problem.

I went into YaST2 and looked at the USB status under hardware.

The report came back that I have several USB controllers active. A couple are the same device nested inside one another like subfolders.

I didn't try deleting any of these devices as I was unsure whether this was normal for SuSe to recognize each USB device as a completely new entity and thus load all the basic controllers for all USB devices it has encounterd.


1. Is this normal?
2. If not normal, should I delete these controllers, and if so, how with the least risk of wiping my system out?
3. If I delete them all, then should I go back through YaST to set up all the hardware again?
4. If I only need to delete the duplicates of the visor controller, how do I know which is which?
