USB hard drive problems

I added a comment to ticket #5092 with a similar issue under a Windows guest. I want to stress some USB devices work for me. I'm able to work with a Sandisk Cruzer flash drive in the same guest without problems. My issue is with a Western Digital external hard disk in a Rocketfish enclosure. VirtualBox initially captures the device then it becomes unavailable. It appears as if the initialization fails but I can't be sure. I didn't find much in my log file. I also observed VM shutdown problems (Kubuntu 9.10) if I kept the USB drive powered on during shutdown even though it was unavailable to the guest. My log file is attached to this ticket and #5092.
