USB module crashes - Slackware 11.0


I have a problem with my usb modules. After my system starts, at random time i try to connect a usb device but when i try to tail -f /var/log/messages i get:

Oct 31 11:40:20 adio kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.2-1 address 2
Oct 31 11:40:21 adio kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.2-1, assigned address 3

but it doesn't mention any /dev/sd?? where usb disk is located. As result i cannot mount the disk. I have to restart my pc in order to restart all USB modules.
I've tried with rmmod to delete all usb related modules (usb-storage, uhci, ehci-hcd and usbcore) but because usbcore has crashed i cannot remove it, so it was pointless. It is saying that usbcore cannot be removed because it is in use. Is there any way to remove by force usbcore module?

Thanks in Advance,
