freecom classic 250 GB external usb hard drive prob


hello.

i can't get my freecom usb hard drive to work.



first thing ,I don't have and /dev/sd* files ?? in the /dev folder??

mass storage and scsi support has all been compiled into my kernel

less /proc/bus/usb/devices

Code:
Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=02 Cnt=01 Dev#=  5 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=07ab ProdID=fccd Rev= 4.36
S:  Manufacturer=Freecom Technologies
S:  Product=FHD-Classic
S:  SerialNumber=FW436_4037007442EF5C93
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr= 10mA
I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=(none)
E:  Ad=01(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
l

lsusb
Code:
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 07ab:fccd Freecom Technologies
nothing in attached devices if the /proc/scsi/scsi file

dmesg
Code:
usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
midi: probe of 1-3:1.0 failed with error -5
i thought the midi line was unrelated but it only occurs when i plug the hard drive into the usb port.

as usual any pointer will be gladly received.

thnks in advance.

works with 2.6.14

I can now mount /dev/sdb1 which is the usb hard drive.
Must have been either the way I compliled the 2.6.13 kernel or some bug with that kernel and this hard drive ???
