    MSI X370 USB not working

    *****BASICS*****
    Installed Lubuntu on new MSI laptop. Everything works great except USB flash drives or external DVD drives. The USB hardware is fine. I know it's OS related. Effected: Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Mint (11.10, 12.04 Beta)


    *****SPECS*****
    MSI X370 Laptop
    AMD E-450 1.65GHz
    AMD Radeon HD6320 Graphics Card
    4 GB SSD
    500 GB HDD


    *****THE STORY*****
    Used unetbootin to attempt to install the following on the laptop/netbook but failed while copying files during installation: Lubuntu 11.10 (32 and 64), Ubuntu 11.10 (32 and 64), Mint 12 (32), Mint LXDE 12 (32), Lubuntu 12.04 Beta (64). This is the reason I filed this under Ubuntu because I believe it's a systemic issue.

    However, after installing elementary Jupiter, I was successful. Because Jupiter is based on 11.04, I installed Lubuntu 11.04 (32). Installation was flawless. I used the upgrade feature to upgrade to Lubuntu 11.10. No problems except for my USB drives again.

    Now my USB has limited functionality. Printer works great. However, I can only copy about 100-20 MB worth of stuff with a flash drive before it crashes. After it crashes, I can't use any flash drive until I reboot. Not only will it not mount, it doesn't even recognize the drive is there. External DVD (hooked into USB) spins up to speed, looks promising, and then crashes.


    *****IT'S NOT THE USB PORT*****
    Please don't suggest this as an option. I copied 40GB of music from an external hard drive while I was still in Lubuntu 11.04. Worked great. I know this is an Ubuntu 11.10+ issue...


    Help? Thanks!!

    Ironically, I'm posting this running the brand new 12.04 off a USB stick. It seems to work fine. Maybe there was a kernel fix. I'll post again if the upgrade solves it...

    Good luck with your tethering!

    Thanks, Dumaron. I'm going to repost the solution below. Upgrading to 12.04 did not help, but this did. Although it is claimed to be a temp fix, I'm marking this solved.

    In terminal:
    Code:
     sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add the following line, save, and reboot:
    Code:
     blacklist rts5139
