I ran into a similar situation trying to connect a second mod. I did several things so I'm not exactly sure which step or combination of steps solved the problem!

- Disconnected/removed Evolv from the USB settings menu
- Restarted everything
- Added Evolv in USB settings
- Restarted everything
- Opened device manager in guest OS (Win7)
- Searched for new hardware
- After verifying Windows recognized the mod, I opened EScribe
- Connected!

Like I said, far too many steps but it worked in the end...

It may be that you need to install the USB port in the guest OS for each mod due to variations in port assignments.  To test, I would delete the USB port assignment from the Guest configuration then set it up again with the new mod.

I may have gone the long way doing it but that's essentially what was accomplished.
In the end, it did work.

I know this is mac support, and what I'm trying to do get this to install under linux (Ubuntu 14.04). . . but. . .Mac OS is basically unix too. . .  

I'm trying to figure out why Ubuntu doesn't pick up on the DNA 200 on the USB so I can enable it under the VM.  Am I needing firmware on the Ubuntu side?  Any linux guru's here?  I really hate booting into Windows just to use escribe...

This is what I get with lsusb:  I think the DNA is device 13. . . 

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1307:0330 Transcend Information, Inc. 63-in-1 Multi-Card Reader/Writer
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 045e:0745 Microsoft Corp. Nano Transceiver v1.0 for Bluetooth
Bus 002 Device 013: ID 268b:0405
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04b8:084d Seiko Epson Corp. PX-402A [Stylus SX115/Stylus NX110 Series]
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0461:4d75 Primax Electronics, Ltd Rocketfish RF-FLBTAD Bluetooth Adapter
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0a5c:4503 Broadcom Corp. Mouse (Boot Interface Subclass)
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0a5c:4502 Broadcom Corp. Keyboard (Boot Interface Subclass)
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

If it is 13 it is not seeing it correctly as it should have the description.  It is 13 as it has the right vendor and product ID.  You could try and update your USB information file with:
sudo update-usbids

But it may be too new to have it. Even if corrected I am not 100% certain it would solve the issue.

You may need to manually edit the USB information file:

However, I can't imagine that the escribe software is looking for the text string of Vendor and Device label rather than the hexadecimal reverence to the same.

Thanks.  Yeah, this is an OS, issue not an escribe issue per se.  Need Ubuntu to see the DNA. . . and it is, it's just not talking to it. I think I need to find out what device library contains the API for the DNA200, if it's even in Linux-land.  I may need to bother people over there.

Edit, updated USB library.  Still not talking.

 No time before work to fiddle in terminal.  I'll deal with it when I get home from work.

lsusb just gets a maintained list of VIDs and PIDs. It doesn't query the device. Whether it shows or not isn't related to whether USB is working.

268b:0405 is the DNA 200, yes.

Thanks James. Well, I have a work around.  Installed virtualbox and made XP virtual machine.  Enabled the USB etc in VB.

I feel dirty for having to do this but at least I don't have to "actually" boot into windows just to diddle with my mod. Every thing seems to work just fine.Selection_043.png

So what were you trying before?  A wine variation?  I used Ubuntu for a few years, but switched to macs when they went to Unity.

Ah...that unity...I was thinking the Ubuntu window manager that came out in verstion 12.  No, I can not get Windows 10 to run in Unity mode in VM Fusion.  It is not technically supported as of yet.

This is an intermittent USB connection issue with virtualbox (on the Mac, not tested it on Linux yet).  Just a word of caution that if it "pauses" while you are updating firmware, you will need to potentially manually update it.  I also had an issue where after a failed firmware update, virtualbox would not see the device to restore the firmware, but a PC could.
