Block erupter issue

I have looked over google for some help but im obviously not looking in the correct places because I did not see what i need. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction. Here is whats going on. I started off with 1 asic block erupter (ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 330MH/s Sapphire Miner) and everything was going fine. i added another one to the setup and everything was still going fine. (this is all being done on USB ports that are on the back of my PC, no USB hub, yet) I then aquired an antminer (BITMAIN ANTMINER U2 2Gh/s USB Bitcoin ASIC Miner. Overclockable) and plugged it into my PC as well. I am using BFGminer 3.10.0 currently and everything was running fine. all 3 miners were mining. I went ahead and ordered a usb hub because i figured if i was going to keep adding miners that my computer would not be a good place to put them all. well a day before the hub got here, i noticed that one of the miners (the saphire one) was not mining. i looked at my device manager and only saw 2 of them. so i rebooted, messed around with some different ports but nothing made that one work. i figured it was broken for whatever reason and assumed it was because it wasnt suppose to be on my mother board. thing is, it works on another PC. so i waited for the hub to come in to see if it would work on there but it still does not. Im thinking its a driver issue since its not showing up on this computer but it will on another. Any idea or suggestion on how to get my current PC (windows 8.0) to run it? Should i try a different version of bfgminer, or maybe cgminer? im fairly new to all this so i dont really know where to go with it.

Block Erupter Sapphire not working with CGMiner

I'm having trouble getting my Block Erupter to mine for me. I'm running Vista 32 bit (ugh) with CGMiner 3.3.0. I think I have the drivers installed and I can see my device on COM3. I'm pretty much using a shortcut with the script below:
C:\cgminer\cgminer-nogpu.exe -o [pool]:[port] -u [username].[worker] -p [password] --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S //./COM3
It just opens and crashes, though. When I try to run it in a command prompt it tells me
USB init, open device failed, err -12, you need to install a WinUSB driver for - AMU device 1:1 Icarus detect (1:1) failed to initialise (incorrect device?) No devices detected! Waiting for USB hotplug devices or press q to quit
I'm using this driver.
Where am I going wrong?
/edit: Basically I'm following this guide because it's the only one I can find that offers help.
/edit edit: installed zadig and replaced the driver, and removed the -S //./COM3, and now I just get "No devices detected!" It's progress, but still not working. :(
/update 3: Switched to bfgminer and that seems to be working. Oddly enough, I'm showing 3 sets of hashes. it shows up something like 520/436/600Mh/s. I'm a little noobish yet with mining, so I'm not sure what this means. I only have one GPU and one Erupter. Why would I show 3 sets that high?
/update 4: Thanks so much for your help! I now have my Block Erupter up and running alongside my GPU. Vista administrator mode is what finally got it working for me.

Bitcoin mining made really easy/BFGminer quick start guide

There is 2 parts to this
If i am missing somthing of if you want to add to this then please tell ms so i can make the changes. All is one and one is all. Infomation wants to be free, so dont be a dick help me make this better for all. Oh one more thing before we start I don't give a rats ass about up votes or down votes or square votes for this matter, I made this to help anyone who is stuck, if you don't like it then scram!(Its not like im forcing you to read this)...Or i am i ...
So if you new or experienced bitcoin miner you should know that shit ain't free. The reason for this is the fact that electric isn't free.(Oh the fun days we would have if it was) When mining there is always going to be a cost, like how to pay for the Hardware, and the power and the maintenance and something that everyone forgets, The time it can take to set up the hardware and the scripts to miner. I chose to do a side project on this and got my own Asic miner USB Block eruptor that mines at 336mhs. It took me about 6 hours to write a working batch file. So show i wanted to show it to you all because it is a pain in the ass.
So If your using "ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 333-336MH/s Sapphire Miner" You have found the right page
You will need install the drivers here is the link = These drivers may be downloaded from:
So this is what i use BFGMINER.exe Verson 3.2.1 So i made a batch file With this in it.(If you need help making this then please tell me.I don't mind helping.)
C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp:// -u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 -p YOURPASSWORD --disable-gpu -S all
-o stratum+tcp:// This is my mining pool -S all will find all divices -disable-gpu because i don't want it to mine on my GPU. Make this the location of you BFG miner C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe
-u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 This is your username and workername. -p YOURPASSWORD This is your password
So from all of this it worked i have basically pieced together everything that i found to make the batch file that will start mining
Woot Woot Empty Space
