Does someone know how archos managed to block certain devices from the 3G usb port? I am studying the kernel source codes and the filesystems of several roms and a cannot find any references to some blocked devices. (Yes I am a expeienced C(++)/linux developer) Most devices do work on the OTG port.

Memory sticks seem to work but when i plugin a mouse of keyboard the folowing line appears in dmesg:
hub 1-0:1.0: Cannot enable port 1. Maybe the USB cable is bad?

What is different on the 3G Usb port?

Good question. I'm not a developer but I have had that happen on a few (older) USB drives as well. Surely it couldn't be and old usb1.0 standard or anything that isnt enabled?

I just figured that it was a power issue thumb drives use almost no power, I'm thinking that archos designed the 3g stick/port to provide power on the low end of USB spec 5v DC and 0.5-0.9 amps.
