I have a NexStar multi interface to USB adapter which I wanted to use to
connect my old IDE HDD to wipe it out before giving it away. While trying
to use it I hit the problem in subject line. That is:"Reset high speed
device using ehci_hcd and address x" in loop message. (Looks like its an
old bug while googling.)
I've tried to unload ehci_hcd and load uhci_hcd module instead in attempt
to resolve the problem. Unfortunatelly this not only caused me loosing my
mouse but appeared to be useless, since the unloaded ehci_hcd module was
fired by OS again automatically, and here we go - same vicious circle.
So, I gave up on it, and then, just out of curiosity, connected the damn
thing to my laptop with Ubuntu Lucid. To my huge surprise Lucid did not
have any problem with it, and right now I'm running shred on the device
writing it with 0's.
How do they manage it, and why it is (still ?) a problem on Debian?
