Bless You, Internet
This guy, "Tímo" posted the solution to a truly pesky problem that he knew was shared by many of us music geeks out here in the world. Now, more than 5 years after he posted this, I am reviving my home recording studio -- and am just now discovering this predicament, and thankfully, Tímo's solution which he kindly took the time to document and share.
Hey, Tímo - this well written and detailed set of instructions has saved me literally thousands of dollars in equipment replacement!
If you ever read this Tímo, wherever you are, please ping me so I can buy you dinner!
