Its like everything is working perfect except this one problem!
i would try fedora live-usb to make sure it is not something wrong with your pc's usb port. we are sure that the harddrive is fine since it works on other computers so now we have to figure out if your pc is bad or if suse is doing something flunky...

edit: never mind. i see you basically did that in your response #14.
(at this point consider it mite be easier to solve your graphics issues the other distros ?

It seams this would be an easier fix. I mean SUSE sees it connect like I showed earlier, even calls it by name.
What does " unable to enumerate USB device on port 2 " mean anyways? Is there a way to manually enumerate it or something? Maybe I can boot from a different distro, copy what I need to home and reboot but wow, seems a lot for plug and play. How can it not work when everything else does? Am I missing something that lets SUSE read from that big of an external drive?

I had tried that already from a Google search. It didn't work for me but I will give it another shot .. no it still didn't work.

I just switched it to Fedora 14 last night and everything works great. Thanks for your time and effort. Should this be marked solved since I don't really need further help with it?

I would think not, it may have solved your problems but I would think your solution would be considered a work around. If they read your post they should figure that you do not need more suggestions. Someone may run across a fix and post which might help someone else.
