Mandriva 2006 iPod problem...


Was running Mandriva 2005, and iPod mounting/unmounting was working fine. Upgraded to 2006, and now the iPod won't connect via USB (laptop). Whenever I plug it in, it flashes "Do Not Disconnect" for a brief (.5 sec) time, and then jumps to "OK to Disconnect". The dmesg output shows uhci_hcd looking at different locations and giving "read/64, error -71" errors and then quitting. Everything I've found online says something about badly wired front USB ports not powering the iPod (or USB drives) fully. But I had it working just before upgrading to 2006, any ideas?

The automounting feature of Mandriva might have been updated recently.. the way I do my ipod, is that I put it directly into my /etc/fstab file..

Code:
/dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod vfat user,defaults,noauto,rw  0 0

I never trust the automounters...

Neither do I =P
However, fdisk -l doesn't show any sd[abc] drives... even aftera modprobe sbp2, still no drives listed under fdisk -l

Any further ideas?
It never gets assigned as a drive...

try booting with it plugged into the usb cable.

Seriously, it does sound like a bad connection from the USB cable itself.

Same problem...
It worked a little while ago, and I've tried both ports (with and without mouse/printer plugged in the other)...

Any others?

Which Ipod?

This "even aftera modprobe sbp2" is for firewire.
Plug in the iPod, what does dmesg report?
As a side note, the mini's require efi_partition=N in the kernel, otherwise they won't mount.
