When I connect the USB 2.0 drive I see this:

usb 1-4.3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 5

so I know it's getting seen as USB 1.1. usb-devices shows that it really is USB 2.0 and connected to a USB 2.0 hub:

T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=03 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=12  MxCh= 4
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=09(hub  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=05e3 ProdID=0608 Rev=77.61

T:  Bus=01 Lev=02 Prnt=02 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#=  4 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1

I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage

It seems the problem is that root hub is:

T:  Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#=  1 Spd=12  MxCh=10
D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=09(hub  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=1d6b ProdID=0001 Rev=02.06
S:  Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.32-25-server ohci_hcd
S:  Product=OHCI Host Controller
S:  SerialNumber=0000:00:02.0

I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=09(hub  ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=hub

And there's no mention of ehci_hcd.

lsusb -t gives me:

    /:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci_hcd/10p, 12M
    |__ Port 4: Dev 2, If 0, Class=hub, Driver=hub/4p, 12M
        |__ Port 2: Dev 4, If 0, Class=stor., Driver=usb-storage, 12M
        |__ Port 3: Dev 5, If 0, Class=stor., Driver=usb-storage, 12M
    |__ Port 6: Dev 3, If 0, Class=stor., Driver=usb-storage, 12M

It seems like I'm missing something which would allow the OS to see USB 2.0 devices. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

1 Answer 1

it looks to me that the disk is attached to a usb 1.1 hub

can you give more information on the connections between harddisk and usb port?

The physical hub is USB 2.0 (see first device in usb-devices output). The linux supplied root_hub is what appears to be USB 1.1. I assume this is software, not hardware related. –  btucker Dec 17 '10 at 16:47
    
There's nothing extra between the harddisk case & the usb 2.0 port in the back of the machine. Just the usb cable. I'll add the full lsusb -v output above. –  btucker Dec 17 '10 at 16:58
