Hello Hans Petter, thank you for your response. I want answer your questions - sorry for the late reply:
1) Does the drive have separate power connected? A: Yes 2) Have you tried using the disk at USB 2.0 by disabling USB 3.0 in the BIOS A: I used for this a very old PC, a "Hewlett-Packard HP Vectra VL60 with Intel Pentium III (Copermine) 733Mhz / 256MB RAM / Mainboard D8611-60001 Board-S/N:FR02632024 / PhoenixBOIS 4.0 Release6.0.L /" 1985-2000 Hewellt Packard Rev, Version: HY.01.07 (15 Jan 2002)" It has no USB 3.0, nor can boot from USB. 3) Have you tried setting "hw.usb.umass.throttle" to 1,4 or 16, which is available in 9-stable, when "options USB_DEBUG" is enable. A: No - I have not known that. But I believe that my pc is more to slow than to fast. 4) "The CAM layer hang you are experiencing is possibly fixed in 10-current." -> fine, I will give it a try when 10-current becomes 10-release. Thank you for give me the information that it is a "CAM layer hang" - whatever this is. So it is not my fault. I now used another (older) external 320 GB USB hard drive. With that I get no problems (making partitions, formatting,..) With best regards, Harald Langner ____________________________________________________________________________ _____ Dipl.-Ing.

The CAM layer hang you are experiencing is possibly fixed in 10-current. It is not a USB fault. --HPS ----- No virus found in this message.
