problem with USB memory stick on OLD machine?
I've got an old HP Omnibook 4150, which still provides good service.
It currently has Mandriva 2007 on it, and almost everythings fine.
Today I bought a Verbatim "Store 'n' Go" 1 Gb memory stick.
When I inserted it, NOTHING registers.
lsusb simply shows
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Now, the odd thing is bigger USB devices work fine.
I've got an Epsom perfection perfection 4590 working nicely under XSane, a friend's camera card reader is fine, and a external Lacie drive is fine.
However, I borrowed some USB memory sticks around the office, and NONE of them work at all.
I would welcome cures, or even advice on how to proceed with diagnosis.
(I tried a bootable Ubuntu CD with the same results, BTW)
