I'm trying to connect a usb garmin forerunner device to my system, but the usb device is not detected. I have loaded the following mods:

garmin_gps 11544 0 usbserial 25449 1 garmin_gps

But I never see any device detected in neither lsusb nor dmesg when I connect the device. Other USB devices like disks and mp3 players seems to work fine.

I'm unsure how I can continue debugging to find the issue and wonder if someone can guide me?

Maybe there's something wrong with the Garmin? Did you try it on another system? –  Keith Jul 21 '11 at 3:09
    
Good point, but it worked last time I gave it a try on Windows. –  grm Jul 21 '11 at 5:51
    
Can you change the mode on the Garmin device? Sometimes the USB port can play multiple roles and you have to set whether you are connecting it to a PC or using it to connect an add-on device or whatever. –  Caleb Jul 21 '11 at 9:25
