plextor convertx, FC4 2.6.16-1 and go7007 driver problems


I seem to be having some recognition problems with a plextor convertx px-tv402u/na and a fresh install of Fedora Core 4 running kernel 2.6.16-1.2108_FC4. I was trying everything I could before I decided to reinstall from scratch to ensure it wasn't something else. I found these same errors posted elsewhere, but no one has posted a resolution for it. I have an AMD system running a clean install of FC4 - (did a yum upgrade before anything) and installed the wis-go7007-linux-0.9.8 driver for the plextor. I've followed the README to a tee, but I still am having a problem. Here is the make and make install output:

# make

Now, the problem happens when I try what is listed in the README for gorecord:

[root@mythtv wis-go7007-linux-0.9.8]# apps/gorecord -duration 60 capture.avi
Unable to read /sys/bus/usb/drivers/go7007: No such file or directory
Is the go7007-usb kernel module loaded?


I've tried unplugging and plugging the USB device back in, all different ports, I've rebooted and tried everything others have tried, but I can't get this to work. Upon inserting it back into the USB port, I captured the output from /var/log/messages, hoping that someone would recognize what might be going on. Here is the output when I plug the device in:

I also checked the hotplug usb directory:

# ls -l /etc/hotplug/usb
total 84
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 21 09:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 May 21 03:30 ..

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2352 Apr 5 10:16 libusbscanner
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1654 Jul 27 2005 usbcam

I don't see anything there, but I am not sure anything would be. I'm just trying to pass along any info in case it can help diagnose the issue.

At the sake of making this post excessively long, I will post anything that anyone would like to see. Has anyone gone through this before and/or have suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Well, this problem seemed to fix itself when I updated the kernel, however it revisited with ALSA. As it turns out I was having trouble with ALSA in a program and thought it would be best to update it (actually remove and reinstall). When I did so, using yum, the same problem above appeared!!

So now I'm hosed! I can't upgrade ALSA without jamming the Plextor Convertx - great! I think the only reason why it worked when I upgraded the kernel was because it probably lost whatever ALSA put in there.

I'm trying a bunch of other things now - I've reinstalled and put an exclude statement in the /etc/yum.conf file to exclude all alsa programs (rpm -qa | grep alsa). I'm trying to see if this works, but I can't get past a stinking yum upgrade. Every time I do this on a FRESH install of Fedora CORE 4, it just hangs right around the 300 mark of 700+ updates. It was initially hanging on dbus-x11, but I've reinstalled again, upgraded yum, then upgraded dbus-x11, only to now have it hang on the java upgrade. I can't win with this annoying OS and I can't believe it's this unreliable on a FRESH install. I'm completely at my limits with this system...
