I am trying to get the ESI MIDImate (EGO SYstems) to work.
I am running 2.6.17-5mdv and here is the /proc/bus/usb/devices entry:

 T:  Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  3 Spd=1.5 MxCh= 0
 D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs=  1
 P:  Vendor=0a92 ProdID=1001 Rev= 1.04
 S:  Manufacturer=ESI
 S:  Product=ESI MIDI Mate
 C:* #Ifs= 2 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr= 20mA
 I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 0 Cls=01(audio) Sub=01 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
 I:  If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=01(audio) Sub=03 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
 E:  Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=   4 Ivl=0ms
 E:  Ad=01(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS=   4 Ivl=0ms

The problem appears to be that the snd-usb-audio driver will not load.
My /etc/hotplug/blacklist includes usb-midi to avoid driver conflicts.

The dmesg output is
 usb 1-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
 usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
 unknown device speed 1
 snd-usb-audio: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -5
 unknown device speed 1
 snd-usb-audio: probe of 1-1:1.1 failed with error -5

/proc/asound/version says ALSA v1.0.12 is installed.
How do I get the driver to load?
