USB sound card appeards twice in multimedia device preference list


My USB sound card used to work perfectly, but after i unplugged it, there seems to be a problem.

When it is unplugged it is in the multimedia device preference list, but it is greyed out. When i plug the sound card in, nothing happens to the greyed entry, instead a new device shows up with the same name.

When press test on the new entry, it works fine, but it's like pulseaudio dosn't recognize the USB sound card, and the sound just comes out of the internal speakers. Also, if i move the new entry up in the list, it has none effect at all. Sound still comes out of the internal speaker.

Does anyone know how i can fix this?

I am using KDE v 4.3.1 on Fedora 11 x_64
