I have a 4th generation Ipod that I connected to my 5.3 Dell machine.
After putting 'device ehci' in the kernel, I can mount the Ipod as a
drive, works fine. I then use camcontrol to eject the drive so I can
just use the usb cable to charge the battery. This all seems to work
However, if I unplug the Ipod from the cable, and reconnect, the machine
will freeze up within a little bit, and I have to reboot. It doesn't
show up under 'camcontrol devlist' either. I can't load it or mount it
or rescan or anything without a lockup.
I have some messages like
last message repeated 115 times
ehci_idone: need toggle update status=00080248 nstatus=80028d80
... and I needed to reset the Ipod before Itunes would recognize it.
Am I doing anything ridiculously wrong? I do want to eject the Ipod so
that disk will spin down, I think...
