Description Jason Grigsby 2007-05-25 17:43:34 EDT
Description of problem: Memory sticks don't work. Sorry if I have the Component
wrong.  I am using a IBM R40 Thinkpad.  I tried the memory stick in Windows and
it worked and I tried the the memory stick on other machines (R52) also running
linux where it worked. I have tried many brands.  This is my work and home
laptop so it gets abused.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): don't really know.

How reproducible: every time I try to use a memory stick - any brand

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in memory stick
Actual results:
Doesn't recognize memery stick.

I noticed the following in /var/log/messages

May 25 17:32:04 tuesday kernel: usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using address 100
May 25 17:32:04 tuesday kernel: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 100, error -71

Expected results:
memory stick to accept address

usbutils contains lsusb to get a listing of usb devices - it is not managing usb
devices at all.

Assigning to kernel.

Was that Windows run on the same system? I'm asking because -71 is usually
a signal integrity issue due to a defect of the mainboard.

The only workaround I can offer is to force the 12mbit/s by unloading
the ehci_hcd.
