Hey guys,

I'm trying to play around with a RFID reader under Ubuntu.

I have 2 computers both running Ubuntu when i connect the USB reader to my desktop computer (10.4 Fully patched) I get when i run a lsusb

Bus 005 Device 003: ID 197e:0001


and My Virtualbox Pickes up the USB device.

However when I connect it to my laptop again running Ubu 10.4 (again fully patched!) i dont get anything under liusb.

Any advice anyone could give would be very gratefully received
Thanks in advance
DB

Have you tried pluging it in before booting and see what happens?

I mean plug it in, and then start your laptop.
