Does your motherboard use a VIA chip for its USB?

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm sort of aware of these VIA vs. USB trouble. A friend of mine has a mass-storage stick for USB, but his FreeBSD hangs when unmounting this device. He has a VIA chip. I don't so the mass-storage stick works with my FreeBSD!

Here is what I have; grep "USB controller" /var/run/dmesg.boot:

uhci0: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-A> port 0xbc00-0xbc1f irq 2 at device 
29.0 on pci0
usb0: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-A> on uhci0
uhci1: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-B> port 0xb000-0xb01f irq 5 at device 
29.1 on pci0
usb1: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-B> on uhci1
uhci2: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-C> port 0xb400-0xb41f irq 6 at device 
29.2 on pci0
usb2: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-C> on uhci2
uhci3: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-D> port 0xb800-0xb81f irq 2 at device 
29.3 on pci0
usb3: <Intel 82801EB (ICH5) USB controller USB-D> on uhci3
pci0: <USB controller> at 29.7 irq 9

You might also want to try a BIOS upgrade.

Would you still recommend this with above chip? (What is my BIOS? Can I find out without having to reboot....?)

Don't blame it on FreeBSD unless you are sure that the hardware is not at fault. And this particular fault might be one that doesnt show up frequently with other applications. Scanners are pretty demanding on the USB bus...

I try not to blame anyone; I was confused and frustrated by the fact that my collegues use the same scanner on a Windows box and have it setup in matter of minutes, without a hitch. I'm struggling for days, and still it hardly works properly.
