Are you just trying one specific type opf USB device,  or  does  this
happen with several 5 or more) different devices?

We tried 6 different USB flash drives:
	GE intelligent stick 2.0 (256MB)
	SanDisk Cruzer Micro (256MB)
	Version G (512MB)
	Memorex traveldrive mini (512MB)
	Unknown brand (64MB) 

Are there any flashdrives that are known to always work?

You can just use the  default  configuration  as  provided  with  the
kernel  tree.  Make  sure to use a current kernel (top of tree in git

We have the latest 2.4 drop from the git repo. Which of the defconfig files
should we use? None of them had usb storage enabled (icecube board).

Thanks a lot,


And keep in mind  that  many  USB  devices  are  simply  not  strctly
standard conforming. Some will work, others won't.

Best regards,
