Description of problem:
Running FC3 on AMD 3200+ with USB 2.0 ports. When insert Sandisk mini
cruzer 1.0GB drive, drive is seen by usbview, but not mounted, nor
added to fstab. When inserting this same flash drive into another PC
running FC3 with USB 1.1 ports, drive is auto-mounted, icon appears on
desktop, icon appears in nautilus under 'computer'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert flash drive
Actual Results: usbview sees flash drive under EHCI controller. No
icon on desktop, no icon in nautilus under 'computer'.
Expected Results: icon on desktop, icon in nautilus
when I had FC2 on this PC, I had the same problem. To fix it, I
removed the line in /etc/modprobe.conf that had 'ehci' in it, and then
flash drive would be seen as USB 1.1 device. I tried this on FC3, but
the flash drive still shows up as USB 2.0 device.
I do not even get this far. I plug in my flash stick and it blinks as
if it is being mounted. But then nothing... lsusb shows only the usb
hubs no devices, ditto usbview. In the past I would just mount
/dev/sda1, but that does not seem to exist either. I did notice a
/mnt/removable directory create once I plugged the stick in, but
nothing mounted to it. Nothing in /media either which is where I
expected the device to mount (since cd and floppy were moved there).
Its as if, FC3 sees the drive, but refuses to use it.
All help greatly appreciated. Once server in particular is backed up
via USB hard drive, and until this is fixed, this is a show stopper!
Same problem here with a SanDisk Cruzer Mini 128 USB2 key on my laptop
(toshiba P10 104) USB2 ports
It seems that the key get recognized (led blinks) but not
automatically mounted like it should be.
It's like Haldeamon fails when the key is plugged
I've added to the bug two attachments :
Before.txt: lshal dump before plugging my USB key
After.txt: lshal dump after the key has been connected.

I just up2dated the latest HAL release (0.4.2) and it hasn't solved
HAL keeps on freezing when I plug my USB key.
Assigning to hal.
This is a known issue with the usb-storage driver - it is being
tracked in bug 136255.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 136255 ***
This is not a duplicate but instead a second and seperate issue
against the same driver.
When I plug in my USB device on an FC3 machine, it does not hang
anything, Fedora flat does not see it!
I have one thing to add though... I have a laptop that I know works
with USB 2 devices (a Sony Viao Z505) that does see the memory sticks.
The only difference that I can see is that the Viao has the memory
stick adapter and therefore dev sees the /dev/sda tree. But with my
other machines, no such device exists, and therefore no /dev/sda to
attach the memory stick to.
AGAIN... No zombie processes on this end, this is a seperate issue and
not a duplicate!
OK, please attach the output of 'hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes' when
plugging in the device. You need to ensure that hald is not already
running, you can do this with 'service haldaemon stop'.
I have a 256MB SanDisk Cruzer Mini, and whenever I boot up, the first
time I plug it in, it works fine, however if i unmount and unplug it,
and then plug it back in, it no longer automounts. (the same problem
as the bug). I have NOT updated hal, and I have NO clue what is going on.

hal --daemon=no --verbose=yes output after plugin my usb key
I added the hal verbose output to the bug.

Update to original report:
I bought an external USB 1.1 hub, plugged it into the USB 2.0 port on
the PC and then plugged the Sandisk mini cruzer into the USB 1.1 hub
and it works fine - hal detects the flash drive as a USB 1.1 device
and everything is ok. I dual boot this PC and the flash drive works
fine as a USB 2.0 device on Windows XP.
Another update - I disabled acpi and now it works perfectly. I
unchecked acpid in Services, and also added 'acpi=off' in the kernel
line in /boot/grub/grub.conf.
I think also that kernel 2.6.10 and later have much improved USB
Storage support. Closing this bug as it really concerns the USB
drivers in the kernel.
I really needed my usb key to work so I bought a Iomega Mini usb2 key
Plugged it in and miracle! it worked.
So I definitively think that the Sandisk Cruzer Mini series have
Yeah, some specific devices are troublesome unfortunately; FWIW, a
friend of mine got a Sandisk Cruzer Mini 256MB (with the blue led)
that works fine; it might be a different revision of the chipset
