Hi Alistair,

Have you installed the hotplug scripts ?

ls -al /proc/bus/usb/001/002  (or 002/002) if that is the node.
Should return something like this.

-rw-r--r-- 1 nut usb 52  8 feb 17.14 /proc/bus/usb/001/002

What is the kernel wersion?

Yes it is a userland driver so no kernel driver would claim the device.
