I’m still having problem with USB 3 and Linux Mint; version 12 in this case. I’m going back and trying the
option once again. This is really, really annoying since all my VMware Workstation virtual machines reside on the external Seagate GoFlex Pro USB 3 hard disk which decides to disappear… While the VMs are running… The latter makes no sense given that the drive shouldn’t go to sleep while they are being accessed…
Frankly, this is a stupid, stupid bug that should be have been fixed many kernel revisions ago.
Anyway, more once I figure out if this works with the 3.0.0-13-generic kernel.
