"a usb device" is rather ambiguous, are you talking about a web cam, a thumb drive, a art tablet, a mouse, etc... the answers to what and why on all of those are considerably different. We need more details it may be something for a thumb drive as simple as needing to mount it or something for a winmodem of it not working regardless. Everything requires the appropriate drivers no matter what the operating system.

You can try issuing this command from a console before you plug in your usb device:
Code:
sudo tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
It prints recent kernel messages. If your system is seeing the device at all, output should appear telling what the system is doing with the device.

You can also issue "mount" to see all mounted volumes. Flash drives should show up here; some other devices won't.
