Question Memorex USB Thumbdrive will not mount on RH9 - USB conflict

I am trying to get a memorex thumbdrive to work on my sony vaio pcg-c1xs picture book running RH9 with the 1.4.20-8 kernel. It seems to be a USB problem, I have mounted this thing on another linux box so I think I know how to do that. The content of the important part of dmesg is the following:

hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x8ec/0x8) is not claimed by any active driver.
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 2, frame# 716
usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
hub.c: already running port 1 disabled by hub (EMI?), re-enabling...
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:07.2-1 address 2
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured
USB Mass Storage device found at 2
USB Mass Storage support registered.
hub.c: Cannot enable port 1 of hub 1, disabling port.
hub.c: Maybe the USB cable is bad?

So I'm not getting a /dev/sdanything.

Anybody have any ideas...I haven't been able to find a solution anywhere.

Upgrade your kernel. There is something about the 2.4.20 kernel that doesn't recognize the thumbdrive. I have the same drive, and experianced the same problem. As soon as I upgraded to the kernel, it worked without any problems.
