I had that same issue for awhile until I added the line:

none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=503,devmode=664 0 0

 to my /etc/fstab file and then made sure my username was in the group
#503.  Once I did that and bounced the box I could at least "see" the
USB devices.  After that flakiness lived on but otherwise....
