OK, on a vanilla 2.6.18.8 I also have this problem, with both the pci/usb2
card, and the usb1 on the board. I listen to music from the drive, and
after some time (10-20 minutes or so), it freaks out:

=========
sd 1:0:0:0: Device not ready: <6>: Current: sense key=0x2
ASC=0x4 ASCQ=0x2
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 126693711
sd 1:0:0:0: Device not ready: <6>: Current: sense key=0x2
ASC=0x4 ASCQ=0x2
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 126693711
sd 1:0:0:0: Device not ready: <6>: Current: sense key=0x2
ASC=0x4 ASCQ=0x2
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 126693711
=========
Will updating to 2.6.23 and turning off autosuspend explicitly help? Will
putting the disk on a powered hub help?
