I get the impression it's because both targets have a (for Windows 
unrecognisable) controller which looks to Windows the same controller.

Maybe a 'hide' switch? This would make Windows a lot happier without 
asking for an unknow controller (ie. IET). With a bit of luck the weird 
behavior with the two targets mentioned above may be fixed as well.
