    Not recognized USB device


    I have installed on my iBook G4 PPC (PowerPC) Debian 5.03, which is working brilliant, but appears one problem.
    I have a digital tablet (SlimTablet) which worked perfectly on Windows, Mac OS and this Debian, but once I've decided to check it with all default graphical programs. After I've run XSane Image scanning program it scaned computer for the devices and tablet stoped working. Now it is just unrecognized by any computers and OSes. Neither Windows and Mac OS can not see it. I think, that problem is in formating tablet: XSane program tried to format tablet for itself and changed some default settings on it and the solution is to format the tablet again. But nobody can see it and I don't know how to format such kind of devices.

    UNIX commands, like
    grep -i name /proc/bus/input/devices
    lsusb

    are not showing this device. So, first problem is to see it (USB is working correctly).

    Second problem is to format it. Is command diskdumpfmt suitable for this situation?

    I can use neither Debian 5.03 and Windows XP for recivering this problem.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Plug-in tablet and execute this in Termnial :
    Code:
    tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    xsane probably thought it was a scanner and wrote what it though was appropriate firmware/driver code to the device. Look at the documentation for the device, or on the manufacturer's support web site and see if there is some way to reset the device to factory settings, or if there is a firmware update that can be written to the device to effect the same.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
