I have USB support in the kernel, while usb-storage is a module. I used
to have the "UHCI Alternate Driver (JE)" - the uhci module - but
experienced problems. After reading Björn's advices (this is before I
learned about Rockbox, btw) I switched to usb-uhci and everything works
like a charm.
I also use hotplug, which works wonderfully. When i plug in the
Recorder, hotplug discovers it and loads the usb-storage module. I can
even mount the Recorder, pull out the USB cable, go home, plug it in the
next morning, and never have to remount it. Too good to be true, eh? =)
