[soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

When using either an extender cable, a hub a cardreader or even just the front panel USB ports (which is an extender I guess) I get errors when disconnecting any thumbdrive or sdcard. That doesn't happen when working on the USB ports directly on the motherboard on the rear IO panel. I thought it was a problem with my drives, but I tried a dozen of them and it's very consistent.

I must say, apart from the error, the drives seem to be working without problems. Any suggestion?

Errors as follow:

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

It turned out that if I do "unpower device" instead of "eject" I get no error, but this still doesn't explain why it works with the back panel IO USB...

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

What is "eject"? /usr/bin/eject? (which operates tray of optical drives…)
Is this related to some filemanger?

You're supposed to sync+umount the device, the hub might be mistaken for a removable device (ie. eject passes w/o "-F" because it doesn't know what's behind)

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

What is "eject"? /usr/bin/eject? (which operates tray of optical drives…)

from man page:

eject  allows  removable  media  (typically a CD-ROM, floppy disk, tape, JAZ, ZIP or USB disk) to be ejected under software control.

I have had no issues with ejecting USB drives... but mine is never connected to a hub. OTOH, I had mixed results with extender cables, so I try and avoid those cables.

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

Do you get the same errors when running "eject -F /dev/sdb1" on the "good" port?

nope, all good

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

Looked at pcmanfm sources, it uses udisks, so let's compare

qdbus --system org.freedesktop.UDisks /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sda  org.freedesktop.UDisks.Device.DriveIsMediaEjectable

on a good and a bad port.

I looked around I can't find anything about "ejectable"

UPDATE.

So I found this instead

qdbus --system org.freedesktop.UDisks2 /org/freedesktop/UDisks2/drives/***DRIVENAME*** org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Drive.Ejectable

which gives me true from all USB ports

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

it seems to be this for all of them

NAME="/dev/sdb" LABEL="" MOUNTPOINT="/run/media/matteo/7206-45B1" FSTYPE="vfat" SIZE="7.5G" TYPE="disk" RM="1" MODEL="Trans-It_Drive" UUID="7206-45B1"

okay looking at that message I had an idea.. I use these drives and cards mostly for 3d printers so they have to be FAT... could that be the problem. I installed all I think that is necessary to handle those drives (dosfstools, exfat-utils, ...). I'll make some tests with other partitions

No.
And nothing there looks like the drive would be "ejectable".

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

unfortunately I can't seem to be able to fix this issue.

The best thing I can do is unmount the volume first and the eject it (or use eject from command line). I think the problem here is udisk... I'll try to contact them and report if anything comes out.

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

I made some tests.  LXDE (pcmanfm without udiskie    and pcmanfm with udiskie)
The problem there is even without being installed the udiskie package.
But in an other system with XFCE and thunar (not with pcmanfm), there is not the problem.
So i believe it is a pcmanfm's bug and you can to ignore it.
I used a SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB stick 32GB in NTFS

if I use udisksctl from command line I get the same issue, so I tend to believe the problem is still udisk. Maybe thunar does something different (like it uses eject instead of udisk)

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

https://archlinux.org/packages/community/any/udiskie/ is not "udisks" but an automount service, it is unrelated to anything here.
The thing that actually handles the mounts is gvfs

udisks2 considers regular usb keys "ejectable", so that's not the problem either.

[ 1673.607290] ldm_validate_partition_table(): Disk read failed.

It looks like the device is probed immediately after being "ejected" and the drive isn't quite ready to respond (ie. a race condition) - I guess gvfs should™ not partprobe "ejected" drives but do so when the (re-)appear?

Re: [soIved] Issue disconnecting USB drives from cardreaders, extenders

Okay, this is the darn weirdest thing...

I changed monitor (the previous one was also an USB hub) and now all ports work as normal. I can use extensions, hubs, card readers with no issue whatsoever.

The new monitor is also an USB hub but it doesn't cause any issue. I would have never imagined....
