Hello everyone;
I using the proxmox 7.0-11. I created a VM (Windows 10) on my proxmox, and everything works fine. But I have problems using USB devices on my VM.
Every time that I connect a new USB device to my machine (Portable Storage, Flash Drive, Wireless NIC and etc...) It won't be mounted into my VM and displays like this:

You can see the details text in orange

So I have to reboot my guest OS, and then It should works fine! But the point is I can't reboot my guest every single time I need a USB device on it!
Another problem is when I trying to remove my USB Device from the VM, It become orange again and I have to reboot the guest to completely remove it from the "Hardware" list.
