I am afraid, I can't.
Please provide logs (as described before) so that we may have a
chance to see which obscure magic there is going on.
It looks a bit like SCSI problems but I am no SCSI expert
so that I cannot help you regarding SCSI problems.

Note that the generic SCSI device files (/dev/sg*) are assigned
to the real hardware devices in somewhat random order and some
USB mass-storage devices show up as generic SCSI device, e.g.
the cardreader unit in my Epson USB all-in-one device shows up
as /dev/sda and as /dev/sg0.
