    USB pen drive not Linux compatible - can I RMA?

    Hi, I received an 8GB Corsair Voyager pen drive from Scan yesterday, and although it seems to work OK in Windows it doesn't work well in Linux at all.

    I managed to re-partition it and get part way through a Linux install, but it froze up and now all I see in my logs are:

    usb 1-1: reset full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
    usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
    usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71
    usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 2
    1:0:0:0: scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery
    usb-storage: device scan complete
    usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
    usb 1-1: device not accepting address 3, error -71
    usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
    usb 1-1: device not accepting address 4, error -71

    ... etc and no actual USB device. I have tried it on 3 seperate linux machines (including one Mandriva 32-bit, kernel 2.6.17, and another Ubuntu 8.04.1, 64-bit, kernel 2.6.24) so it's not a problem with my USB controller hardware.

    In addition Corsairs "EzRecover" software for Windows doesn't detect the drive, so I can't reset it to a known "good" state.

    Essentially this drive is useless to me at the moment. I'll crawl through Corsair's support forum if I have to, but I'd rather replace it with a different brand of USB pen. Can I get an RMA for this kind of issue?

    Thanks,
    Pete
