Well I have this really shweet Samson C01U usb studio condenser mic. When it is plugged in before I boot my machine, everything works like a charm, and I can sound like a rockstar recording my stuffs in UbuntuStudio 10.04 x64.
But when I'm not being a rockstar, I'm using my normal Lucid distro to go about my everyday tasks. So when I decide to call someone on skype, I plug the mic in, and nothing happens. The sound config window does not show the device? I do not want to reboot every time to use the mic (and that's all that works), and I do not want to leave it standing on my desk either.
Any ideas? Maybe I should restart Pulse or something? Help would be appreciated!

The things plugged into my machine via usb is:
* 2 Flash Disks
* Wireless Keyboard receiver
* Bluetooth dongle
* And the mic.
The mic has an LED that is on as I speak, but clearly it is not being detected!
Here is the output for dmesg:

I have no idea what is going on there, so a little lesson on dmesg would be very cool!
Strange, I did a little experiment, the mic is plugged in now, and it is working (after rebooting with the mic plugged in). After running lsusb again, it spits out the same as before! Without showing the mic! Really baffling.
