http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi When I plug certain USB devices into my computer, they get 'disabled' for a while, before returning to normal operation. They get disabled every time I use them with Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 15R. After being disabled, they will not work on any other computers for a period of time. The devices work fine on the same computer running windows (after being left alone for a while, they work again). They also work fine on another computer running a similar Ubuntu configuration. The devices are: Telstra USB modem Logitech M500 mouse Iomega external HDD (this one fails occasionally) The same (Hardware)
