[opensuse] USB times out cant see what's on drives

I'm using Opensuse 11.2 with the latest updates. Linux x86_64 kernel on a Dell Inspiron 1545 and
have all the KDE4 eye candy turned off.

When I insert a USB drive, either flash or hard drive, I get a
window eventually asking me to choose what to do. I open the
drive in file manager, click on a folder and 6 seconds after the
contents are displayed the folder goes blank. Neither Dolphin
nor Konqueror can see the drives without replugging. Same
failure every time. My Computer indicates the drives are
attached as /dev/sdc1 but cannot view contents.

I googled usb timeout with no luck finding the answer.

lsusb shows the following after the disappearance:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:0158 Realtek Semiconductor
Corp. Mass Storage Device
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0ace:1215 ZyDAS WLA-54L 802.11bg
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1005:b113 Apacer Technology, Inc.
Handy Steno 2.0/HT203
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 067b:2507 Prolific Technology, Inc.
PL2507 Hi-speed USB to IDE bridge controller
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root

How do I make the usb drives useable again? They worked fine
on 11.0 and early on when I installed 11.2.
