I tried pmount with hal but that didn't work so I removed them.

I tried usbmount (took me a while... I managed to freeze my Linux getting this installed :lol: ), but it doesn't work.

Is there anyway that I could get this thing to recognize USB flash drives?

EDIT: Ok, I finally got it somewhat working. The external drive (one that connects to the USB and to the power) works, but if it's a simply flash drive (The USB only, no power outlet) doesn't work at all. Anyway to fix this?

Sorry Bogey, I have no clue lol. It seems people have linux karma. The more you use it the more it likes you and things just seems to magically work haha

It seems like many people here:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=38859

have had a similar problem as you Bogey. This part seems to have the same error number as you:

Quote:
error, and changing the USB cable fixed it. Also, with the bad cable, devices other then the one with the bad cable (a hub) were affected. Makes locating the problem difficult. It would appear the -110 error is a power-related error, if anyone else is having issues. (I think maybe the cable was shorting)


Another guy said this:

Quote:
if the dmeg error is '-110';
try to unload module ehci_hcd
modprobe -r ehci_hcd

or blacklist it in
/etc/hotplug/blacklist


I have no idea if this would work though, just trying to find some solutions for you. Let me know if any of this helps.

When I try to unload it, I get the following error.
Quote:
FATAL: Module ehci_hcd is builtin



How do I blacklist it though? Searching for it on google didn't yield any helpful results.

Type in this:

nano /etc/hotplug/blacklist

That will let you edit the file. Then add to the file:

ehci_hcd

Then hit CTRL-X and it will ask you to save the modified buffer. Hit the Y key and then hit the ENTER key after that to write over the same file. See if that does anything.
