Cant read usb drive, kernel bug?


I have an usb drive that my linux systems cant read.
In Windows XP everything works and other usb drives works without problems.

Is this a kernel bug or what?
I run OpenSuse 10.2 and Slackware 11 with kernel 2.6.19.
I doesnt work on any of my systems.

dmesg:

What happens when you manually mount the drive?

I cant mount it because linux wont find any filesystems on it, just /dev/sda etc.
I cant fdisk it neither, I will result in an I/O error.

The disk isnt corrupted because it works under windows and osx.

It's a kernel bug. Upgrade to the latest kernel and submit a kernel bug report if it's not fixed yet
