Plugging in usb hard drive gives a couple of cryptic errors in /var/log/messages
and otherwise doesn't work.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

appreciated.  Thanks.

Most likely, something is broken - either the HC, cable, or the enclosure.

I wish I could resolve this bug as SUBMITTERISDUMB.

I had a jumper set wrong on the HD; you'd think I'd learn.  Sorry for bugging
(lame pun intended).
