I had a controller connected as #1. The plug was loose, and it disconnected. When I reconnected, it was #2. Subsequent connections and disconnections always result in #2. Can this be changed without rebooting?

The easy answer is to reboot and resync the xbox controller. –  Elpezmuerto Jan 17 '12 at 20:22
    
From the OP: "Can this be changed without rebooting?" I am fully aware that rebooting will reset it. Note the question mentions plugs; it's not synced because it is a wired controller. –  Almo Jan 17 '12 at 20:28
    
You can disable and re-enable the port? –  Elpezmuerto Jan 17 '12 at 20:34
    
I tried disabling and re-enabling the HID listing in the Device manager. I don't see how to tell which Universal Serial Bus controller the thing is attached to so I could reset the port directly. –  Almo Jan 17 '12 at 20:37
    
What OS are you using? –  Elpezmuerto Jan 17 '12 at 20:38
