Hi,
I've got an external USB 2.0 drive that I use on my Fedora Core 2 machine with no problems.
I plugged it into my Fedora Core 3 box and its a NO GO . I get the following messages in syslog:

Nov 24 20:47:56 kernel: usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using address 7
Nov 24 20:48:01 kernel: usb 1-2: control timeout on ep0out
Nov 24 20:48:06 kernel: usb 1-2: control timeout on ep0out
Nov 24 20:48:06 kernel: usb 1-2: device not accepting address 7, error -110
Nov 24 20:48:06 kernel: usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using address 8
Nov 24 20:48:11 kernel: usb 1-2: control timeout on ep0out
Nov 24 20:48:16 kernel: usb 1-2: control timeout on ep0out
Nov 24 20:48:17 kernel: usb 1-2: device not accepting address 8, error -110

To see if USB works at all on my FC 3 I used a little flash reader from my camera and it was properly detected and worked as supposed to...so looks like USB kinda works on my FC 3.

I've tried didfferent ports with the same result. Any ideas on what I can do to get my USB drive working on Fedora Core 3?

I couldn't get a USB2.0 flash drive to work on a USB2.0 port, but if I plug that same flash drive into a USB1.1 port on the same PC, it worked great. Try plugging your HD into a USB1.1 port and see if it works.

Got it working! :D

I simply issued the command:
modprobe -r ehci-hcd
and the drive was immediately detected, mounted, and available for use.

Every time I boot I must re-issue this command for it to work again.

Not sure why removing the "ehci-hcd " does this...but it works. :confused:
