There may not be a driver yet for your device. The output of "lsusb" will be informative. The ID column will show a pair of numbers and sometimes a description. For example

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 050d:0119 Belkin Components
You can search the internet for your "Vendor ID:Device ID" pair and the word "linux" and see if there is a driver out there for your device.
