As far as I know there’s no way to turn off the automatic recognition on its own. However, you can use a USB forwarding program like VirtualHere to bypass Shadow’s recognition and use it as a regular usb device on Shadow.

I will admit that using VirtualHere free requires quite some work and a degree of technical knowledge. If you want the fast easy method it’ll cost you sadly.

Unfortunately I'm not sure there is a way to turn it off, you should contact support and see if they would have an answer though)
