FreeBSD's existing USB stack is known to be... shall we say, flaky. It's well-established at this point. The possibility of it being related to FreeBSD's USB stack is very likely. A new USB stack is available for CURRENT, but requires manual patching. If you're willing to try this, you should get in contact with Alfred Perlstein <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> to discuss/get the patch. Keep in mind that this patch, as I stated, only applies to CURRENT, and not to FreeBSD 7 or earlier.
