comment Under Linux, how can I tell the real power consumed by a usb device
@Ramhound thanks for your comments. The documentation of the device does't appear to say how much power it needs. Watts=Volts*Amps, and I assuming its 5V. 2mA is obviously way to little - the drive must consume more than that. A USB 2.0 port should be able to provide 500ma. I have a 4 port powered hub with a 2000mA (i.e 2A) power supply. However I am aware some devices require more than 500mA and I suspect my drive is one such device.

Thanks. Just tried autoauth and its working for me. Will have a look at secure-login too as that that looks interesting also. Your points re. security noted!

Thanks a lot for your help. You probably saved my data. I had no idea the antistatic bags where so easy to get.
