Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Mount is not listed in fstab, mounted 'on the fly' by fuse i do beleave.
Added 90-storage-nosync.fdi to try and remove the sync option
lspci should list (EHCI). UHCI (or OHCI) is the USB driver. But EHCI is the usb 2.0 driver extension. Without EHCI, you're stuck at USB 1.1 or worse. It doesn't always have to be a module, it could be compiled into the kernel. Not that it matters if it exists / is loaded or not, if you don't have a USB 2.0 bus. CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y (from /boot/config)
Also NTFS-3G in linux is slower than NTFS in windows. Which might be where you're noticing the difference between OS's. In either case, my USB docking station only does about 3MB/s with EXT3. It's supposed to be a 10MB/s drive, but over USB, you're not exactly capable of high sustained bitrates. That's why there's firewire, and hopefully USB3 in the near future.
And in the case of my docking stating doing Input and Output doesn't work to well. i.e. Playing .WAV files from a previously ripped CD, while creating new WAV files from a different CD. In this particular instance there even appears to be some conflict with the mouse driver(s) while using the drive in that manner. There's some nomux or demux kernel parm that helps, but that ultimately crashes my X, so I just live with the temporary disabling of the mouse while performing such tasks.
If it says it supports USB 2.0, then
- check there's nothing in your BIOS settings that could be interfering with USB2.0 detection
eg. look carefullly at USB settings, & make sure "PnP Bios" is set to NO if you have that option.
- Try a live distro (eg knoppix) - how does that see your hardware?
