    Default USB flash memory not working

    I've just got my new notebook 'Toshiba Tecra A7' and I'm having trouble reading USB flash memory sticks in any of the USB ports on the computer (side and back USB ports have been tested).

    I can use a USB mouse though, so the USB ports are working. I have also tested my flash drives on the same notebook with a different OS (FreeBSD) and they worked fine.

    Is this a slackware driver issue?
    How do I find out what USB controller i'm using on the notebook so I can provide more information?
    Is there a way to fix this?

    Here is the message i get when i plug in my usb drive:
    usb 5-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
    usb 5-5: device not accepting address 6, error -110
    usb 5-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7
    ...
    It continues like this incrementing the address each time.

    Default

    I just found if I type 'rmmod ehci-hcd' I can use my drive, but i think this means disable USB 2.0.

    Default

    loading the driver with the following command:
    modprobe ehci-hcd

    I get the following error:
    ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: Unlink after no-IRQ? Controller is probably using the wrong IRQ.
