Hi.

I have a Supermicro 5018D-FN4T (Xeon D-1541 based SBC) that I use for virtualization. I’m running CentOS 7.3 on it (updated), with the CentOSQEMU-EV.repo repository as the source for virtualization packages.

I run an Ubuntu 16.04-2 guest VM on it, which is ordinary enough. What’s perhaps less ordinary is that I’ve attached a Lexar Media, Inc. “Lexar Professional Workflow CR1 CFast 2.0 USB 3.0 Reader” (LRWCR1TBNA) as well as a WEme Superspeed Aluminum USB 3.0 Multi-in-1 Card Reader … for CF/SD/TF Micro SD. Here’s the relevant lsusb output:

Bus 004 Device 004: ID 0bda:0309 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Bus 004 Device 025: ID 05dc:ba04 Lexar Media, Inc.

and both are hanging off of an Amazon Basics 4-port USB 3.0 hub:

Bus 004 Device 002: ID 2109:8110 VIA Labs, Inc. Hub

The Ubuntu VM I use for doing buildroot cross builds of an embedded Linux environment, which I then burn the image of onto a CFast card, having attached the Lexar card reader to the guest VM.

Problem is that the card reader is extremely dodgy, and sometimes I guess a flurry of messages on the virtualization host complaining about the device:

but lately it just kills my VM when I’m writing to the device. So from annoying to a serious potential for losing work.

I run “yum update” a couple of times a week but now I’m thinking that was a mistake, since this has gone from being ultra-reliable to being a hazard.

Is there a workaround? Would I be better off plugging the USB 3.0 card-reader into a USB 2.0 hub and settling for slower throughput… but not crashing?

Below, for instance, I was doing a “dd if=xyzzy of=/dev/sda bs=1M” where /dev/sda is the device assigned to the USB card storage device.

Thanks,

  • It seem more likely related to specific USB driver your have installed and not compatible with your existing kernel.

    Have you try other USB device and compare?
