USB disks failure

This weekend one of my USB disks failed after a suspend to disk. I've found the following messages on dmesg: device descriptor read/64, error -32 Looking for this on Google headed me to problems related to the USB cable or even on USB suspend on Kernel modules. I tested both without success. After some tests I've found that the problem was related to the power cable. For some unbelievable probabilistic series of facts, it wasn't plugged correctly. 😟
