    SubjectUSB CF reader reboots PC
    ASUS P4S533 (SiS645DX chipset)
    P4 2GHz
    1G PC2700 RAM
    SanDisk SDDR-77 ImageMate Dual Card Reader (using only CF cards)

    devfs compiled in to kernel, devfs=nomount in lilo.conf

    Insert CF card. mount it. cd to it, do reads and/or writes
    umount card. remove card.
    insert a different card (does not happen if the same card is used)
    mount it. system reboots. logs are corrupted

    Doesn't happen every time for read - sometimes I can read 2 or 3 cards first
    Happens every time for write - if I write to a card then changing cards
    causes a reboot

    devfs=mount in lilo.conf

    Insert CF card.
    ls /dev shows sda and sda1
    mount it.
    ls /dev shows sda - no sda1
    cd to mounted CF card
    process hangs, sd-mod & usb-storage "busy"
    rmmod -f usb-storage or sd-mod causes PC to stop
    (keyboard & mouse unresponsive, wmfire frozen, net disconnects)

    Insert CF card.
    ls /dev shows sda & sda1
    mount it.
    ls /dev shows sda - no sda1
    umount it
    ls /dev shows sda - no sda1
    modprobe -r sd-mod && modprobe sd-mod
    ls /dev shows sda & sda1
