fr is plugged in and powered on? no suspend?
if so, unplug it from the host pc, open a konsole/shell and do

sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog

have a look at the shell and plug in the fr again.
any messages?
there was a bug in one of the last u-boots, that broke about 50% of usb  
connections -- rebooting (the fr or the pc, couldn't figure out which, try  
fr first) is supposed to help.
the lattest u-boots are supposed to fix that.
