Iomega Prestige HDD and Karmic

Just a little heads up. If you have an Iomega Prestige USB hard drive and you use suspend a lot and you are planning to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 or already have, there’s an annoying bug that makes the drive go in to an unresponsive state until power cycled. The symptoms include

  • Takes a long time to actually suspend, waiting at a blank screen
  • Drive doesn’t automatically power off like it should when it detects the computer has been suspended
  • Drive is no longer visible to the system after resuming, even after unplugging it and plugging it back in
  • Must be power cycled before it functions properly again

 

Here’s the bug report
