[clug] USB memory stick

I have just been given a USB 'keychain' style flash memory beastie. It's a
no-name thing with "Standard and Poor's" printed on its outside. I'd like to
use it on a machine running Debian unstable and kernel 2.4.22
USB in general is working on this machine; my digital camera can be mounted as
a USB block storage device and files may be copied from it.
When I connect the memory stick, dmesg shows that it has been seen, but it
throws an error:
hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-1, assigned address xx
usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=xx (error=-110)
where xx is a decimal number that increments by 1 each time I reconnect the
stick. With the stick attached, the contents of /proc/scsi/usb-storage-0/1
Host scsi1: usb-storage
Product: Generic USB Disk Device
Serial Number: GENERIC USB DISK DEVICE????????
Needless to say, I can't mount or use the stick. I have Googled and read Nico
Sauer's USB flash memory howto, but the answer eludes me there.
Can someone suggest a web reference I should be reading or offer any
suggestions for using the stick?
