Start by running /etc/onerng.sh manually (as root) 

	/etc/onerng.sh daemon ttyACM0

(change ttyACM0 to whatever the port your device was assigned when it was 
plugged in)

That usually gives some error message that is a clue - if it's not obvious 
feel free to post the output here or to me - note I'm off on a biz trip in a 
hour or so I will be travelling for a couple of weeks, email responses may be 
slow ....
