I have a few flash drives in my possession. All of them will mount fine, except one which refuses to mount. Instead, this refuses not to mount. I shall attempt to attach my dmesg log for you all to look at.

This is my dmesg log file
1. This looks more like a support question than a bug.
2. Could you limit that log to just the lines printed
when you unplug the drive and plug it back again
(and from something more complete than dmesg) ?

1. Sorry, I thought it was perhaps a bug.
2. I have done so, using grep this time.
3. What do you recommend?
See attached file.

dmesg log with USB
I'm not saying it's not a bug, just that it
may be a problem with the drive model or alike,
so this problem may be better suited for the forum,
where somebody perhaps will recall about a similar problem.
You said yourself, that other drives work,
so if that's not a problem with the filesystem,
it may be like Linux not liking the way this model works
or it's just a hardware failure.
Assuming these messages follow each other quite rapidly, it would seem the device isn't getting enough power once it's initialising:
usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
scsi7 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb 1-8: USB disconnect, address 9
I don't see how this is a Gentoo problem unless you can point out how it's no problem when you run the same hardware with different software.
