i've gone through a almost similar problem especially the plugging into another usb and it doesnt recognise.
First uninstall everything axiom on your pc
Then, re-install without pluggin it in. (Since you are using Reason 6, you DONT need to install Hypercontrol as its all mapped to Reason ^_^)
Once you have installed, go to the website and update to the latest drivers
After thats all done, pick your usb port and plug it in.
Turn on and wait for it to do its recognise yada yada stuff
Update to the latest firmware..
After all that, start reason and do the autodetect
it should find it. If it doesnt, do manual however i believe it should find it.
If it doesnt......please proceed to go H.A.M
Reason 7.0.1, Windows 8.1 core 2 quad 2,34ghz, M-Audio AxiomPro49; Behringer BFC Mixer; KORG padKONTROL, ESI 1010e
