You may check what I suggested (device manager) and reinstalling Diverter's driver. Some DACs/USB-DDCs require reinstalling driver when USB chipset/port is changed.
JCAT USB Isolator

This computer/digital stuff never stop to surprise me!
I did not reinstall the drivers, because it showed same symptoms when I tried with WTF player with Linux OS.
Now short story long!
The only way that is working is FEMTO => JCAT usb cbl => Isolator =>10-15cm DIY usb cable => ifi ipurifier2 => Sonicweld
Changing JCAT usb cable after Isolator is not working! Looks that it likes short connection after the Isolator!
From the beginning I wanted to try the usb adapter, from Isolator to Sonicweld, but I don't have enough space in the back, since my Sonicweld is attached to my DAC via BNC/BNC adapter!
Taking away the ipurifier 2 is NOT WORKING!!!! By all means I expected the opposite!
Adding only Ipurifier between FEMTO card and Sonicweld, I get more clear sound, better highs, but the voices are tinnier and to screamy. Bass is the same, but a bit tighter.
Adding the Isolator with the Ipurifier2 and the cable that I made, I get a bit less harshness and a bit better bass, but nothing like jaw dropping, just a bit. (comparing without all 3 of them)
For the record I have to to mention that my system already is very quiet. Also, the Isolator was connected for more than 2 weeks into my laptop, to burn in!!
So far I'm happy that I finally made it work and still happy with the improvement, considering my weakest link the short DIY usb cable.
