Slackware 10.2 with kernel 2.6.14.4 (i've tested it on the newest kernel 2.6.15.4 - the same result; and on debian sarge with 2.6.13.? (another, different, machine) - the same result).

On windows there's no problem - i'm connecting my iPod - iTunes runs and all is ok.
On linux i get errors like that:

dmesg:
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 1-3: device not accepting address 4, error -71
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-3: device not accepting address 5, error -71

Of course, number of addresses are changing.

lsusb:
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

After that iPod turns on, but even battery is not charging. It only turns on and that is all.

Please help. I can't every time go into window$ for upload songs.

Code:
modprobe usb-storage
# plug it in
dmesg
Might work better, not sure. USB is pretty tricky at times but my iPod (20G color) has always worked perfectly.

Once you get a favourable dmesg output, you can go on to mounting it and perhaps using it with gtkpod or amarok.

The thing is, its not the only usb module needed for it to work.. Ive always kept it as a module so it can load all the other modules needed.. (:
Just try loading every usb-module you have (you can find the list via: modprobe -l) and see if that helps.. Otherwise, I realy donšt know what it could be.. /:

Do other USB Mass Storage devices work correctly? Or anything else USB?

Try plugging it into a different USB port. I had this same problem, the addon ports on the front of my case occasionallly give me that output with my iPod, other times it'll wait until I put load on the connection (transfer music) to crap out

Works fine when I use any of the USB ports on the back of my case though. Could be my cheapo motherboard not providing enough power to the addon ports but it's worth a try

Yes, there's no problem with mass storage (pendrive, usb olympus camera or usb2.0 hard-drive).

can you disable usb 2.0 in your bios.

I have a ecs nforce3-a motherboard. when I have usb2.0 enabled my front usb ports dont like usb storage devices though rear work fine. disable 2.0 in bios and all works nicely except printer which prefers 2.0.

good luck. might try enabling verbose messaging for usb

That isn't so easy.. remember - it's a laptop, in bios there's a few functions.. e.g. date & time or boot device.
I'll try using back usb ports on machine at work.. but front of them doesn't work, as far as my laptop ports.
I'll try verbose messaging for usb too.. and i'll write results.

Thanks for reply.
