http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I've recently moved to Fedora from Ubuntu and I'm using Fedora 11 with KDE 4.3. I have external USB Hard disk drive with 2 ntfs partition of 200 GB each. I'm using HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop having AMD Turion 1.8 GHz Processor and 1 GB RAM. Everytime I connect the external Disk I see no response on screen and I do not see my external USB disk in fdisk -l command. However I found following log in the /var/log/messages file Oct 18 01:11:25 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:11:26 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=058f, idProduct=6391 Oct 18 01:11:26 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 Oct 18 01:11:26 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: Product: USB TO IDE Bridge Oct 18 01:11:26 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Generic Oct 18 01:11:26 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice Oct 18 01:11:29 localhost kernel: scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices Oct 18 01:11:42 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:11:55 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:12:14 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:12:17 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:12:30 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 Oct 18 01:12:33 localhost kernel: scsi 6:0:0:0: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery Any idea how to fix?
