  1. Yeah; I tried it and got:

    modprobe: invalid option -- 'w'
    Usage: modprobe [-v] [-V] [-C config-file] [-d ] [-n] [-i] [-q] [-b] [-o ] [ --dump-modversions ] [parameters...]
    modprobe -r [-n] [-i] [-v] ...
    modprobe -l -t [ -a ...]

    11.04 Natty.

      The -w option must have been eliminated. It caused the shell to wait until the command was done before executing the next command. Perhaps this slightly modified command will work for Natty:

      sudo modprobe -r usb_storage; wait; sudo modprobe usb_storage

      The same command also works for me in Lucid (10.04).
