Hi dmdimoff,

Yes, I think if System profiler sees them, they should be mounted, too. But that's what makes me wonder. They don't.

I can mount those devices no problem in my macbook, running leopard, too.

I can also mount those devices using the Generic USB EHCI driver from orbyte. So, this is a complete mystery to me.

My keyboard is just a simple A4Tech USB keyboard. It's not even detected at all even at System Profiler. So I revert to my PS/2 just to fix things up. Again, this keyboard works under the same driver above.

Anyways, thanks for all your help. It is very much appreciated.

hello,

I have been reading for some time now and have not been able to fix my USB issues. I would really like to get these things fixed before the year is over, LOL, would be nice!

So I have matching system kext so from the get go this is not the problem.

No legacy option is bios either.

I did finnally notice that if I plug my iphone and my usb mouse prior to booting it will mount but as soon as I unplug them they are no longer recognized if plugged back in.

Can you write up some guide on how to install these files because I am really lost once I have the files downloaded.

Thanks a bunch.

to
get rid of "EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS" error
make all USB ports running
and in some cases get restart/shutdown working

tnx cvad for cleaning situation

I experience the exact same thing, on both my laptop and my PC. I have tried all the kexts presented here and it is still a no go.

It is very strange, because when I boot up without any USB thumb drives or hard drives, it won't mount them in Leopard, though when I enter System Profiler I can see them there, and my USB Thumb Drive shows up with the make and model. Though when I boot up with my USB hard drive plugged in (the one which I use for Time Machine) and powered up, then I can plug in any USB storage device.

Though, USB keyboards aren't recognised, even after doing the wizard. My phone which I use to connect to the internet is not seen as connected, though Leopard saw it once, and I connected to the internet once, this was after leaving my phone plugged in for a while, and I was doing some installation, I think I was installing a kext, nothing to do with USB though, when it recognised it.

I would love to get this sorted out. It is the only problem I am having, other than that my PC is 100% compatible with Leopard.

My laptop is a Gigabyte W551N and my PC runs a GA-945GM-S2 motherboard.

- Edit

I'm running Leopard 10.5.4 from the iATKOS_v4 release.

I have the same problem as mhacleth above.

Running 10.5.2 on a Dell Dimension E510, drive appears in system profile, doesn't mount. All drives, USB keyboard/mouse work though fine. Just gotta reinstlal PCGen everytime to get it to work and mount, very strange.

Such strange behaviour may be related to IOPCIFamily.kext. Try new one.

Finally a true fix! This kext worked perfectly all USB's recognized and mount anything plugged in. Thank you very much, it has been a bumpy ride but now its smooth sailing from here.

Only thing I need now is to know what wireless card to buy so I can geet wireless working. Any suggestions would be great.

Also if some has a sleep fix for iatkos 2.0.

Thanks again!

Slice, et al,

Have you tried filing a bug report or sofware enhancement request?

I wonder what anyone's experience with this has been...

So one should just have to copy the IOUSB ktext into their Extensions folder and it will work? What is the proper way to copy this folder, because the last time I tried, it said it wasn't installed right. I believe it had to do with permission issues.

You means to inform Apple about the bug we corrected?
I think this is a difference between Mac and Hack so Apple doesn't need the enhancement.

Yes, this is ordinary permission issue.
I write usually instructions to topic.

Right, well I got it to work this morning. At least...work in the sense that I copied the new one over and my keyboard and mouse still works. My iPhone still doesn't show up, or start charging or anything.

Just to let you know, this driver fixes an issue I had where a 2GB USB flash drive was showing as a 1GB.

Thank you!

Hi !

Wouldn't you help me with my problems. I have Asus F3Tc Notebook and my USB controllers are:

USB1 Controller: nVidia nForce 430 (MCP51) - OHCI USB 1.1
USB2 Controller: nVidia nForce 430 (MCP51) - EHCI USB 2.0

MotherBoard: Asus F3000T Series Notebook
Motherboard chipset: nVidia GeForce Go 6100, AMD Hammer

I have only my USB mouse working. Other devices (Flash Drives, iPhone) are not shown even in System profiler.
I tried all of your packages but still no luck.

I also need some help with this. I have a Dell D600 which I installed 10.5.2 from the Kalyway DVD and then upgraded to 10.5.3 because I want to do iPhone app development. Ever since installing i've had two issues. One is that connecting either my Sandisk 4GB pen drive to the USB port crashes the machine, as does my Freecom 60GB external hard disk. Sometimes if I have these attached before I power on, I can access them! I've tried switching the USB Legacy support in the BIOS and it only seems to disable the ability to boot and detect devices when it's switched on.

I tried the instructions in your first post, downloaded and copied the 315 files to the Extensions folder and rebooted. Everytime I connect anything via USB the system crashes.

My system.log shows.

Any ideas on why the system crashes as soon as a USB device is attached or how I might be able to debug this further?

I actually just added a USB mouse and that is recognized in the System Profiler as being connected, yet the mouse doesn't actually work :rolleyes: I tried two mice that I know do work, and the same results... however, the system didn't crash like it does when I attach a USB storage device. Doing to try switching over the legacy USB options...

Rebooted with the USB Legacy support disabled. Now the mouse worked (because I had it connected at boot time) and plugging in my USB Key doesn't crash the machine, but it doesn't get mounted either. Looking at the System Profiler and it shows a "U3 Cruzer Micro" as being connected...

Amazing... rebooted and now it all works, detects two USB keys as well as my external drive. What on earth that was all about I do not know!

Final comment on this... If my USB mouse and USB thumb drive are connected at boot time, then I can remove the thumb drive and connect the external IDE drive. Yet if nothing is connected at boot time, the system crashes when I connect either the mouse or USB storage devices...

So it's not perfect, I can live with making sure these things are connected during boot, but something is definitely not working correctly. I'm will to provide access/diagnostics if you want to continue troubleshooting.

This is usually a mismatch between the kernel version and the system kext version. Also, you probably don't need PCGen.

Read this thread, there is also a link to a package that can help fix your problem: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=95789

I installed the dmdimoff version on a 10.5.4 install done from a retail dvd (via boot-132).
With certain USB 2.0 hard disk enclosures pluged in, when you shutdown the machine would lock up.

This package solved it. ;)

Is the plugins directory from dmdimoff's IOUSBFamily all that is needed?
