If you can't reproduce, it may have been a transient hardware issue
(eg, loose plug).
Otherwise, to summarize, the devices are now detected pretty reliably,
but you still have an issue with double detection of the Philips
The double detection looks like the controller doing something weird.
I need to look closer at the spec, but I don't think I'll be able to
do that until later in the week.

By default, the order of USB drives in the menu is basically random.
If you want to ensure a particular order for USB then a "bootorder"
file can be created. You can look at the wiki for info on how to do
that, or you can try to extract the bootorder file that John Lewis
uses in his roms.
