Your problem could be a USB hub problem, I've got such a problem in
the past with a hub which was not really USB 2.0 compatible.

The manufacturer claims it has "Eight USB 2.0 EHCI ports". The
motherboard is Thunder K8WE (S2895), .

I've downloaded Linux drivers from but they are for
network and audio only. For USB, the Release Notes say:

Q: Does NVIDIA supply a Linux driver for the USB and USB2.0 devices?

A: The USB and USB2.0 devices use the industry standard OHCI and EHCI
interfaces, and will work with the standard Linux USB drivers.

Apparently, the standard Linux USB drivers do not work with Tyan S2895
in my case.


In this case I added an Adaptec PCI->USB+ieee1394 card and it worked fine.
There is certainly a problem between the linux driver and the nvidia chipset,
have a look at the hardware compatibility list.
