We are going to use CMX USB stack for MCF52222X.
While working with it, i've experienced following problem:
When connecting the M52223EVB board with PC (IBM ThinkCentre desktop with Intel 82801EB chipset ) using USB, Windows XP SP2 detects new hardware, but couldn't install the driver. Just adds an "Unknown device" with VID_0000&PID_0000 seen from "Device Manager". Doesn't matter if running HID or CDC demo.
Trying to solve the problem, researched the web about it a lot, then reinstalled the Windows XP SP2, updated BIOS, updated all drivers from IBM and Intel, tryed different USB ports - but nothing.
Failed also with other ThinkCentres with Windows 2000 SP4 (different models of ThinkCentre, but with Intel 82801EB). Using the same PC's with extra PCI-USB card (VIA chip) works fine.

The board and USB works fine with IBM ThinkCentre with 82801G chipset. So i guess the problem comes with 82801EB.
* 82801EB chipset works with other USB devices.
* CMX USB stack works with other chipsets.
Possible conflict sources:
* USB stack bug which appears only when using with 82801EB (timing e.g.)
* Evaluation board M52223EVB hardware and 82801EB chipset "handshaking".

Anyone knows a fix or workaround for it?
