this is just a guess, but try compiling your usb support as modules. you shouldn't need ohci, its for old old usb pre 1.0 i think.

ok i booted the windows box with slax and it worked. i conclude that my laptop isnt putting out the right current and/or voltage needed for the drive to work

Yeah, you may be right after all. USB support, be it in module form or integrated into kernel shouldn't make any difference. At least, it should not interefere with the drive being recognized.

BTW, ohci_hcd is still required in order to make USB 1.1 work !!

but if your laptop isn't putting out enough voltage, it wouldn't work in windows either. Since you aren't getting any dmesg entries it isn't finding it. My thinking was if you compiled them as modules you might get some dmesg entry.


btw thanks for the info on ohci, i didn't know
