USB Drive Mount
I have two 500GB USB drives that my Gentoo system here will not read.
Both these drives are fat formatted.
The tail of DMESG, the entries actually go on for a long long time, has
the following report for either of those two drives,
[ 6027.085508] ehci_hcd 0000:01:0a.2: detected XactErr len 0/8 retry 29
[ 6027.085636] ehci_hcd 0000:01:0a.2: detected XactErr len 0/8 retry 30

[ 6027.136062] hub 1-0:1.0: state 7 ports 5 chg 0000 evt 0008
Both these fat formatted drives are easily read on several other systems
running Windows or MAC OS X.
The Gentoo system will read small usb memory sticks up to 16 GB fat
The Gentoo system will also read a 750 GB NTFS drive without problems.
Is anyone able to point me in the direction to figure out why the fat
usb drives will not be read by the Gentoo system?
