I use USB drives sometimes. Flashes work fine.
But recently I've got external USB case for hard drive.
It turns on the drive only after plugging USB cable in.
And 2-3 seconds are needed to spin the drive on.
And it often happens that kernel recognizes only umass and
scsibus at umass, but not sd itself.
So I need to plug it off and on again in hope of finding
myself more fortunate.
Can it be because of some too restrictive timeouts in the kernel?
