PCI USB Card Does NOT Work With Mass Storage Devices

I have a StarTech PCI card with 6 USB 2.0 ports that I inserted in my 500 MHz (overclocked) B&W Power Mac G3. It works great for any USB device EXCEPT for any hard drive or DVD/CD-RW drive. I checked the system.log file for errors. Nothing shows up in System Profiler or Disk Utility, obviously. Here's what it consistently says:
Dec 16 23:33:28 Geoff-Myers-Power-Mac-G3 kernel[0]: USBF: 674.997 [0xf9c000] The IOUSBFamily is having trouble enumerating a USB device that has been plugged in. It will keep retrying. (Port 6 of hub @ location: 0x62000000)
Dec 16 23:33:33 Geoff-Myers-Power-Mac-G3 kernel[0]: USBF: 679.977 [0xf9c000] The IOUSBFamily was not able to enumerate a device.
I'm running the latest version of Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.3. What is wrong? StarTech doesn't have a driver, but nothing should be necessary. Is there a 3rd party USB Mass Storage Device driver that might work better than the Apple generic driver? PLEASE HELP ME! I cannot live with USB 1.1.

Some users have reported problems with certain brand cards and their controller chipsets, so trying a different card may resolve the problem. Keyspan and Macally are often mentioned as being more "Mac-friendly" than some other lessser-known brands or generic cards. Does the card have a mini-power port to supplement the power requirements? With USB 2.0, each port is on a separate bus, so a card with six ports should have one. To minimize the overall draw on the available power, I prefer to install USB cards with as few ports as are needed.

    Hey Marco,
    This is a end-user-to-end-user support forum for the most part, I suggest you contact Apple via http://getsupport.apple.com or even http://www.apple.com/feedback to alert about your issue.
    Good luck.

    External USB HD does not work with HAL:
    From the last 10 days the HAL auto-mount with ntfs-3g file system of my external hard drive  does not woks.

    I have done the following:
    Downloaded the patched hal version.
    used makepkg in /abs/local/trunk/ to create a pkg for pacman
    used sudo pacman -U pkgname to install it.
    used sudo nano /etc/hal/fdi/policy/preferences.fdi to create the fdi file with the following content:
    saved the file and removed my ntfs entryes from fstab and rebooted. and still there is no automount off ntfs partitions.
    have i done something wrong?
    br fjodork
    WARNING: what follows is a guide of what did work for me, I'm still in an early stage of learning linux, so please correct me if anything of what follows is wrong/dangerous/stupid. As I said, this worked for me, it's not pretty, since I was learning each step on the fly and I'm sure there are better ways to do this.
    So fjodork, you seem to have done the the necessary steps, though i couldn't get it to work until i first removed hal without dependencies
    pacman -Rd hal
    it will give you some warning about the dependencies, ignore  it since we are reinstalling hal in a few steps.
    First i tried to follow Raymano's link, obviously it showed me nothing in the browser so I thought it might be a broken link.
    So I downloaded the source tarball from here http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/hal-0.5.10.tar.gz
    unpacked it changed the /tools/hal-storage-mount.c as per Milfadoodle's instructions.
    at first I tried to compile directly from source, the process would finish without a glitch though after reboot nothing changed, as if hal weren't
    installed, i guess there were issues with paths. anyway read on
    Then repacked the source in tarball, copied it to /var/abs/extra/system/hal and modified the PKGBUILD as follows
    makedepends=('pkgconfig' 'gperf')
    options=('!libtool')
    install=hal.install
    source=(${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz #removed url so makepkg looks in the current directory for the tarball
        hal
        hal-policy.patch
        cryptsetup_location.patch
        hal-0.5.9-hide-diagnostic.patch
        ntfs3g-valid-options.patch)
    md5sums=('6641c30a27c00485c6accac5110ff911' # replace with md5sum of your package's sourceball (run md5sum filename)
             '882f67668cb14a0a9e4a27ef22278027'
             '5ba8b610aa9763a5f42b9f7cbd7a86ad'
    then makepkg (i had to add --asroot, don't ask why
    and finally pacman -U hal-0.5.10-1-i686.pkg
    another reboot and everything worked without a glitch!:D (yeah i know i still haven't got rid of the reboot mentality )
    I have also put the policy files as per the wiki instructions.
    PS: I know this is a dirty way to getting things done but as i said, I'm just starting
    If anyone could comment/correct/explain this post I'd be more than happy, the automount issue was bothering me for about a month now (you'll say why do I need ntfs in the first place? well, I only recently switched for Linux as my primary OS, these are some relics of the M$ era

  • One USB port does not work with external Disk or USB key

    Hello,
    Back to my iMAC there is 3 USB port. The second one - in the middle - does not work pluging an external Disk, an USB key or an iPOD nano. However it works well connecting a Wacom tablet.
    Is there an explanation to this behaviour ?
    More the keyboard is plugded on USB port 1 and the mouse on the keyboard. Time to time - especially at reboot - I have to unplugged the mouse and plugged again it in order it works.
    In advance thank you for your answers
    Regards

    Since it does not work for three different devices, I will assume it is not something simple like a faulty USB cable. Since it does work for one device, I will also assume that the port is (at least partially) working.
    As a test to narrow down the cause, I would try restarting from your Mac OS X installation disc (insert disc and restart with the C key held down).
    At the first Installer screen (after language selection), go up the menu bar. Under Utilities, select to run Disk Utility. Now, connect the USB drive into that center port. Does it appear in the Disk Utility sidebar?
    Please post back the result...

  • Apple USB keyboard does not work with one internal usb port

    Hi everyone,
    hope someone can help me to solve my problem. I have a MPB13 retina late 2013 since something like 3 months. I have additional screen (dell), usb wired keyboard (apple) and BT magic mouse.
    Since a few days, my usb keyboard does not work well. It only want to work properly when plugged to the rights side usb port internal port and not anymore on the left one. It also work on a usb external concentrator. Before, I had no problem, it worked perfectly. There was no problem such as cofee on it...
    After searching the web on such problem, I tries a few things such as:
    I tried the keyboard on another computer (windows): works fine
    I tried usb stick and external DVD reading on the left internal usb ports: works fine
    I switch the MPB off and turn it back on: the usb keyboard still does not work on the left usb port
    I tried the SMC and PRAM reset : nothing
    Any idea ??
    Thanks
    Guillaume

  • Added USB Card does not work.

    I just added a 5 Port (4 external and 1 internal) USB PCIe Card to my mac pro. The MAC see the card but anything I plug in does not work. The items I plug in work on the other Apple USB Busses but not on the new card. This is actually my second card for this (I thought the first one was bad) but now I am beginning to think the MAC PRO is bad. I have plugged the card into every slot on the motherboard and they all are the same. card is recognized but anything I plug into the card is not...
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi Bruce Leingang;
    Everything I found on the web about that card say that it only works on Windows PC.

  • USB Camera does not work with iChat

    Hello,
    I'm having a terrible time getting my ToUcam Pro II to work with iChat. I downloaded the iUSBcam program. That didn't work. I downloaded the program Macam, and copied the proper file into the Quicktime Library (as suggested) and that didn't work. I downloaded IOXwebcam, and got an error stating that it wouldn't run due to the fact that it didn't have the proper security settings. Sigh.
    So... what am I to do?
    I'd like to buy a webcam that does, actually, work with my 8 month old Mac Pro 4 core mac desktop, but the iSight camera is ridiculously expensive. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
    Brad

    An X-box 360 cam will do it although not in that list.
    Anything that is USB 2.0 and marked UVC compliant or Vista Certified.
    Be Aware some Mac Keyboards do not have USB 2.0 ports.

    He reported to me, that some time, he connect a mouse or a keabord to the USB, at the back of the screen, the two devise does not work, while it works when the devise are connected to USB port of the MacBook Air.
    His Macbook Air software are uptodate.
    Does you know how to make working the USB devise connect to the screen?
    And what does make those trouble?

  • PCI wireless card does not work after restart - FM2-A55M-E33

    Installed TP-LINK WN751ND wireless PCI card onto FM2-A55M-E33 motherboard. The card works fine after cold start, but does not work after restart. Windows recognises the card, but it gets code 10, cannot start.
    BIOS is updated (v.11.1), as well as drivers and Windows 7 64.
    I suspect that this might be the issue: Incorrect ASPM Transitions on the GPP Interface as found in ChipsetMotherboard_TechDocs/48671.pdf on AMD's official support site.
    Does anyone know more about this issue?

    Great! I've done that and now my card shows up. Thing is, when I try to get an IP address, it won't work. Here is the command output:
    ieee80211 phy0: wl_ops_config: change monitor mode: false (implement)
    ieee80211 phy0: wl_ops_config: change power-save mode: false (implement)
    ieee80211 phy0: wl_ops_bss_info_changed: qos enabled: false (implement)
    And then it times out and no IP is assigned. The thing is, wpa_supplicant stays alive after this time out, and I am unable to kill it (killall -9 wpa_supplicant won't kill it). At this point if I try to reboot the machine, it will stop at 'Rebooting' and won't go anywhere. If I turn off the wireless card in its switch Linux crashes. If I try to get an ip again (by running dhcpcd) the command will hang and not return to the shell anymore.
    I am unable to find any useful information in the logs.
    Got any more suggestions?
    Thanks! (And sorry to disturb so much)

    As of Firefox 4.0 and newer one needs at least OSX 10.5+ and Intel hardware.
    The latest you can use on your Intel with OSX 10.4.11 is Firefox 3.6.25 (released recently) which can be found at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
    If you were to update to say OSX 10.5.8 then you can use Firefox 9.0.1

  • USB hub does not work with iTunes

    I have been trying to add USB ports to may Mac's and am not able to synch through the hub. They are hi speed 2.0 USB hubs by Rocketfish and Belkin. iTunes locks up until I remove them from the USB cable (spinning color wheel) and then iTunes goes back to normal. I have tried with both my 24" Intel iMac (Metal one) and a new 15" Macbook Pro. When I use the USB port on the Mac iTunes works great. There seem to be a ton of USB problems posted and zero answers on how to correct. I have tried with an Color iPOD, iPhone and an iTouch to no avail. Having a couple of USB ports won't work in my situation. Anyone know if Apple has posted a workaround or a real fix anywhere.

    Thanks, I missed where I posted But I tried with my HP - Same issue. I think others have had this. I believe that iTunes is hit or miss on Hubs. I wish I could figure out what makes them a hit - instead of a miss.

  • ESATA express card does not work with Mavericks. Any suggestions?

    This is an Apiotek II 300 Express Adapter. I went out to Apiotek.com and it appears the domain is for sale. Is there any way to get a software update or do I have to buy a new Express Card that allows eSATA drives to work with Mavericks. I did a backup before I upgraded using X 10.7.5 and everything worked fine. The eSATA drive is not seen using Disk Utility either.
    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    The driver has to come from the manufacturer of the card, so your two options are to get another card or to use your full backup to go back to 10.7.5. That assumes it's a clone backup and not Time Machine.
