Seem more like a kernel problem -> reassigning.
Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2011-09-26 13:43:39 EDT
There was a fix for an issue that sounds similar to this in one of the recent 2.6.40.x F15 kernels.  Does the latest F15 kernel have this issue?

The same problem currently exists with my 32bit F15 system only this time the display dropped to the console before freezing so here's the picture I took.

Could you please try this update and see if the problems recreate:


We've added another possible fix for this issue from upstream.
Comment 5 Don Church 2011-10-04 20:46:15 EDT
Alrighty...I installed the PAE kernel i686 and things work well.

No freeze or crash, the only thing is that I have to select safely remove device two times since the first time I get a failure to unmount notice due to a busy file system or device but that happens occasionally on other usb storage occasionally.

Good work and thanks much.
