Can't connect External HDD: SCSI error: return code = 0x70000


Hey. I have an external USB hard drive I'm trying to get attached to my computer. I'm running FC5 on a Toshiba Laptop.

When I first booted with the drive attached, I created one huge ext3 partition using:

Code:
/sbin/fdisk /dev/sda
/sbin/mkfs.ext3 -v /dev/sda1
That all seemed to go okay. I rebooted and now /dev/sda isn't showing up. Demesg shows:

Code:

There's more...

It keeps on trying... I check dmesg periodically and it's erroring out at another sector... like it's going through one sector at a time, haveing an I/O error and... maybe marking that sector bad?

Code:
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 3-1: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
sd 0:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x50000
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 60
Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 60

I don't know if it is the same case, but I bought a 2.5" hard drive (samsung) with a USB2 rack.

The rack is auto-powered and it comes with a strange USB cable which ends with 2 USB slots.

When I plugged in the rack on my fujitsu laptop with one of theses slots, I've got message like yours.

In fact, to be correctly powered, the 2.5" rack needs to be plugged with both USB slots, not only one.

I hope my english is understandable and this post could help somenone...
