Thread: usb soundcard not found on boot

  1. #1

    Default usb soundcard not found on boot

    Hi,

    More than 90% of the cases my Terratec Phase 26 usb soundcard is not recognised during bootup. Sometimes, however, it does work (and for several weeks it keeps finding the thing each time I boot), but most of the cases it refuses. The solution is rather simple, is I just need to unplug and re-plug the device to get it working.

    Although I don't really consider it a lifethreatening issue, it's been troubling me for some years now, first when I runned gentoo, and now running opensuse11.1. Still, I had enough, it should work.

    Some output:
    Code:

    This shows the error "device descriptor read/64, error -XX", which is found a zillion of times on the internet, but most of the time without (real) answers.
    • Some of the hints are unloading the ehci_hcd module, but this would make my usb2.0 devices work very slowly. Moreover, to do this at startup, I should mess around in modprobe.conf (in which is defined that ehci_hcd is automatically loaded whenever/before ohci_hcd gets inserted...).
    • Other hints include passing module options to usbcore (in /etc/modprobe.d/usbcore: options usbcore old_scheme_first=Y use_both_schemes=Y), but whatever variant I try (replacing Y by 1,...), after reboot /sys/module/usbcore/parameters/old_scheme_first is still set to "N". Very fustrating.
    • I tried resetting the usb-device with this little program ('Re: re-enumerating the device' - MARC), but it doesn't work. (actually, I tried resetting the whole ohci-device itself (/proc/bus/usb/002/001) since my soundcard has't got enumerated at all).


    To conclude, this is what I get when I unplug/replug the device:

    Any ideas how to solve this?
    Or does someone know to virtually unplug/replug a non-recognised usb-device?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried unloading that sound module and loading again with /etc/init.d/boot.local ?

    You could also try unloading then unloading ehci_hcd in /etc/init.d/boot.local

    un- and reloading of ehci_hcd and snd_usb_audio don't work: I tried several sequences without success. Reloading ehci_hcd results again in the same "device descriptor read/64, error -62"
    errors.

    I also tried the supplied (much shorter) usb cable instead of the 4m cable I usualy use, again without success. I thought the errors might be due to power loss or time-out issues associated with this longer cable. Clearly not.

    Have you tried newer kernel? I guess if that won't work then you should file a BUG.

    P.S.To be honest, i also have sometimes (very rarely) that BUG when i have my USB stick connected.

    During the 2 years I use this soundcard, I had a lot of different kernels running. (I had a regularly updated gentoo, until the beginning of this year) I had this issue with all kernels
