My external hard drive is a baracuda 7008.9 of size 160Gb, i am running a fedora 10 distribution on a hp pavilion laptop.
i have a problem related with the usb2.
If i am trying another hard drive than it works like a charm.
Having looked at dmesg :
It failed to use configuration #1chosen from 1 choice and output an error 110
It reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd
I concluded that there was an issue with ehci_hcd. I forced to unload the ehci_hcd driver using that method :
and found a code of that type : 0000:00:0f.4 in it.
Than use this code with the appropriate code :
echo -n 0000:00:0f.4 >/sys/bus/pci/drivers/ehci_hcd/unbind
It worked and i was able to mount my hard drive.
The problem is that ( if i understood right) i am not using usb2 capabilities to transfer my files anymore, it implies that the transfer rate is low ( <1Mb/s).
Have u any idea's on how to fix it ?.
Thanks in advance.
