Ok, this indicates a communications error between the USB stack and the
device.  I have experienced this for two different (unrelated) reasons:
(1) bad cable so that the device cannot communicate reliably enough.
(2) using EHCI for 2.0 support, with a 1.1 hub and the device is 1.1 too.

You can check for (1) by trying the device in a different kernel or OS.
You can resolve (2) by explicitly disabling the EHCI support and retrying.
