Ipod hangs on connect

Postby sharsch » 26 Jan 2012, 15:12


When I connect my iPod I get the following messages and the iPod hangs:
Code: Select all
usbd_set_config_index: could not read device status: USB_ERR_SHORT_XFER
ugen3.2: <Apple> at usbus3
umass0: <Apple iPod, class 0/0, rev 2.00/0.02, addr 2> on usbus3
umass0:  SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x0100
umass0:2:0:-1: Attached to scbus2

The iPod isn't listed under [FILE]/dev[/FILE].
The iPod filesystem is now FAT32 to be able to use it under FreeBSD, when I plugged it using HFS+ I was able to see the device using [CMD="camcontrol"]devlist[/CMD] but after I reseted the iPod with a Windows machine to get FAT32 it hangs or restarts all the time over and over as soon as I connect it to the FreeBSD box, I can still use it under Mac OSX like normal...

Any ideas?

Under FreeBSD 8 and 9 I've found [CMD=" "]sysctl hw.usb.ehci.no_hs=1[/CMD] to work most of the time. I've always assumed it was my hardware but maybe not.
