Getting my headset to work reliably

So I have a Steel Series Siberia v2 Illuminated USB Headset.

It works in liunux...but only sometimes. I have to unplug and plug it back it multiple time for it to show as the correct kind of device and I can choose it as an output.

It likes to show up as just an "Analog Input" a lot of the time.

So my question is: is there a way to get this headset to show up as the correct kind of sound device reliably?
