iPod mount troubles and too much work for irq 10


My issue is that my iPod and my laptop got in a fight. Whenever I start up I am able to connect my iPod and mount it without a problem, but if I unmount it (say to take it with me) and come back and try to mount it again it doesn't work. I have checked dmesg in hopes of finding the problem, but the log file is filled to the brim (over 2000 lines) with this message:

serial8250: too much work for irq10

I have done some sniffing around with this error message, but to no avail. I am running Scientific Linux (Basically Red Hat Enterprise 4) on a 2.6 kernel. My computer is a hp pavilion laptop and I am connecting the iPod (photo to be exact) via usb. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Where are you mounting it (~/mnt/IPOD)? What device are you mounting (/dev/sda2)?
Are you using the umount command to unmount it, or just unplugging it?

mounting it to /mnt/ipod (so that gtkpod will see it with no config modifications), the device usually comes up as /dev/sda2. And when I unmount it I do it properly (unmount command).

try plugging in the ipod, running 'dmesg | tail' and posting it, then unmount it (umount is the command, not unmount) and post 'dmesg | tail' again. no quotes for those commands obviously...

sorry, typed unmount as a force of habit. Anyway I found that this problem has more to do with my other USB device, my mouse. The error message is reported everytime I move the mouse. Because the message is repeated so many times, I can't get to the mount and umount of the ipod (basically if I breathe on the mouse 500 messages are reported).
