What kernel version on Ubuntu?

The usb-storage stuff was (finally) completely rewrittren around 2.6.9. I
have found that many usb-storage devices I have now work either better or at
all, however it mnay have changed for various other devices. As Brad has
said from time to time the usb-storage stuff is a bit of a mess.

If you jhave not tried it in a latest kernel (2.6.12 or there about) do so
and see what happens.
