Look at usb-modeswitch. Many devices when first attached to a system come up in "Windows" mode and emulate a mass storage device with the Windows drivers available on them ready to be installed. Once installed on Windows they do the equivalent of a usb-modeswitch to flip the device into its correct operating mode. You need to get it to do that too.

Of course, once you do that, you may then find that it still doesn't have any driver...
