Hello

I have a problems getting usb devices to work. I have mp3 player and my sister's digital camera.
I tried to connect them to what happens ,if udev can handle them.
And it is nothing...

so i checked(with connected either mp3 or cam)
lsusb -> nothing...

I have selected usb hook in mkinitcpio
Using beyond kernel.
Really i dont know what to do.

Just take look to your /var/log/messages.log during plugging in. And post the related part of it.

No new info in /var/log/messages.log when i plug in any usb device...

Edit:
Now i also see that /proc/bus/usb is empty ,there should be devices int there shouldn't it?
It is almost like i havent got any usb ports but i have and i know that they're working (were working few days ago and i havent done anything to them since) Devices are also good. Dont know whgat to do anymore.

Check if the usb modules are loaded:

lsmod | grep hci

Have you other devices to check if the usb-ports work correct? Maybe you should try the standard kernel of arch.
