USB Drive Problems

I have a 256mb usb drive. The vendor is OTi. When I put it in the usb-storage module is loaded and the SCSI emulation works. It is located at /dev/sda. The problem is about 30 sec after plugging it in my system locks up completely. I put usbcore and usb-storage in the /etc/hotplug/blacklist and loaded them manually after plugging in the usb drive. The usbcore module loads find and I left it for a minute to see if that was the problem. But, my system didn't freeze until loading usb-storage. Does anyone know what is going on here?
