Hey todd... looks like we are cross posting while each other is typing. :)
No, I am using the single USB cable which came with my passport drives. They do not have a 2x USB end, just a single. and they work fine on my netbook which uses kernel 2.6.29. They mount very slowly on my desktop machine which uses 2.6.31, but the do work there too.
The problem is with my HP dv9000 laptop, which they worked perfectly with until kernel 2.6.3x
