    Hi,

    I have some problems in mounting my thumb drives and usb external hdd. Previously I've used FreeBSD 5 and 6.x, and I've never(hardly) encountered problems in accessing usb drives.

    Currently my system is running on FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p3, and the error that appeared on dmesg:

    Code:
    drm0: [ITHREAD]
    uhub1: port 8, set config at addr 2 failed
    uhub1: device problem (TIMEOUT), disabling port 8
    uhub1: port 8, set config at addr 2 failed
    uhub1: device problem (TIMEOUT), disabling port 8


    This doesn't happen all the time though. At times it'll work, I can mount it, but error will occur when I start transferring some big files. Error appeared:

    Code:
    da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
    da0: <Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 PMAP> Removable Direct Access SCSI-0 device 
    da0: 40.000MB/s transfers
    da0: 7636MB (15638528 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 973C)
    GEOM_LABEL: Label for provider da0s1 is msdosfs/KINGSTON.
    umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT
    umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT
    umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT
    umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT
    umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT



    But, sometimes, it simply worked beautifully. It gets mounted by itself, pops up thunar and display the its content. File transfer went smoothly. All's good. Guess those were some of my lucky moments. I did try to reboot my system everytime my bsd went apeshit, hoping that things will work after a fresh boot up, but still no luck.

    Any idea on how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Entirely new USB stack in FreeBSD 8.0. Try upgrade.

    Thanks aragon, sorry it took me a while to reply back.

    Previously I upgraded to 8.0-PRERELEASE (I put in the wrong releng tag), it didn't work, so I upgraded again to 8.0-Release. Still, it didn't work. I've been googling around but guess I failed to get my usb drive to work.

    dmesg when I plug in my Kingston thumb drive:

    I do have device pass in my kernel and I've uninstalled libusb and recompiled hal.

    Code:
    [root@meh /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf]# kldstat -v | grep pass
    		12 pass

    		257 ehci/usbus
    		256 at91_udp/usbus
    		255 uss820/usbus
    


    Appreciate any help offered.

    Thanks!

    I have a similar issue.
    Code:
    [winrid@pcbsd ~]$ camcontrol rescan all 
    Re-scan of bus 0 was successful Re-scan of bus 1 was successful Re-scan of bus 2 was successful Re-scan of bus 3 was successful Re-scan of bus 
    4 was successful Re-scan of bus 5 was successful Re-scan of bus 6 was successful Re-scan of bus 7 returned error 0x39"


    And with my USB drive in:
    Code:
    #camcontrol devlist
    <Generic USB SD Reader 1.00>       at scbus0 target 0 lun 0 (pass0,da0)
    <Generic USB CF Reader 1.01>       at scbus0 target 0 lun 1 (pass1,da1)
    <Generic USB SM Reader 1.02>       at scbus0 target 0 lun 2 (pass2,da2)
    <Generic USB MS Reader 1.03>       at scbus0 target 0 lun 3 (pass3,da3)
    <LG CD-RW CED-8080B 1.04>          at scbus2 target 0 lun 0 (cd0,pass4)
    <LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1L BL05>      at scbus6 target 0 lun 0 (cd1,pass5)

    Running FreeBSD 7.2-Stable. It won't detect my drive plugged in, could someone just help me get that fixed? I know how to mount drives, but the issue is there is none to mount even if plugged in!

    I made a post Nov 2008 (search "rescan") that listed
    four commands to mount [something]. Have those 4 been
    tried in these intance(s)?

    Sorry for the late reply. I've tried to mount it manually last time but it just failed miserably.

    Code:
    [root@meh /usr/home/meh]# camcontrol rescan all
    Re-scan of bus 0 was successful
    Re-scan of bus 1 was successful
    Re-scan of bus 2 was successful
    Re-scan of bus 3 was successful
    Re-scan of bus 4 was successful
    


    Code:
    [root@meh /usr/home/meh]# camcontrol devlist   
    <ASUS DVD-E616P3 1.05>             at scbus1 target 0 lun 0 (cd0,pass0)
    <TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S202J SB01>    at scbus1 target 1 lun 0 (cd1,pass1)
    <Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 PMAP>   at scbus4 target 0 lun 0 (da0,pass2)

    I added options NETGRAPH and device udbp in my kernel, rebuild and reinstall it and as a result I got a 10 seconds of joy seeing my Kingston usb stick finally appeared on my screen :)

    But then I encountered a different error when I tried to mount it:

    Code:
    DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending


    And another error:

    Code:
    Unable to mount "KINGSTON":
    
    Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the 
    reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken


    I removed the .hal-mtab file and got it mounted by right clicking the Kingston device image and click on 'Mount'. But then I couldn't unmount it. Even using the command line.

    So I decided to shut down my box for a bit, and start it up again. And am back to square one :(

    Output of dmesg:

    Code:
    xptioctl: pass driver is not in the kernel
    xptioctl: put "device pass" in your kernel config file

    When I tried to mount:

    Here's my custom kernel, am I missing anything?

    Anyone has the slightest idea about this? Should I try rebuilding my world?

    Thanks.

    Disable/stop DBus and HAL (# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dbus forcestop, repeat but with hald instead of dbus) and try mounting manually.

    Don't mount using mount_msdosfs. Use mount and specify the filesystem with the -t option, e.g.:
    # mount -t msdosfs -o longnames /dev/da0 /mnt
     
    sixtydoses thanks for this.

    Thanks Beastie. I tried that but I don't know what happened suddenly my computer hangs so I had to reboot. I plugged in my usb stick again and it automagically mounted by itself (dbus and hald are still running).

    Back when I was still using FreeBSD 7.x, I used to have problems when transferring huge files from my usb stick to my pc. But just now I tried to transfer a number of files, one of it is almost 4gb worth of size, and all was good. Perfect. Wonderful. I don't even know how to describe my feelings right now :r

    I don't feel like plugging it out, but oh well, let me just play around with it and see if the mojo stays.

    dmesg output:

    The mojo stays! Just 98% of it though :p

    Well I can mount my usb stick now with no problem, either as root or non root. It won't get mounted automagically like before, but I can live with that :)

    Thanks a lot everyone :e

    Oh I forgot to mention that if I were to mount it as non-root, it'll take a while to get it mounted. Prolly about 7 - 10 minutes. Not sure why though.
