Hi,

The Kingston DataTraveler II USB flash drive works OK with some
computers and doesn't work with some others. Does anybody have an
idea what is wrong and how to fix it?

Here is a shortened section of /var/log/messages from a computer (SUSE
Linux 10.1, 2 x Opteron) where it doesn't work:

On my home computer (SUSE Linux 10.1, 2 x PIII), the OS freezes when I
connect the USB flash drive. But if I boot the OS with the flash
drive already connected, then I can access it without problems. I had
similar problems with previous releases of SUSE Linux so it is not
10.1 specific.
