    ... and make sure it is actually a USB data cable, not just a USB charging cable.

    This often trips up users.

    To start with make sure that device is detected appropriately in Linux. Plug the device in and examine the output from the following
    Code:
    usb-devices
    Code:
    dmesg|tail
    There's a potentially a bit more to it than just having it connected via a USB cable. It will really come down to how the USB device appears to the OS.

    FWIW, based on this Ubuntu thread at least it may appear as a USB HID device (although the above output could help determine that)...

    *The thread also details some work by a user who created a small script to obtain glucose readings in a Linux environment. This might be worth investigating as well.

    From a Linux perspective, it would be a matter of knowing the relevant device node created for it (eg /dev/usb/hiddev0), making sure that the user has r/w access to the device node (a udev rule may be needed to help with setting group ownership). However, I'm not sure how such a device would be interfaced to a WINE environment.

    Assuming that we are dealing with a USB HID device, the following wiki page may be relevant...
