Hardware drivers will not work in Wine, sorry.
However, from your post I understood that you have Windows. So you can
download VirtualBox for Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64-bit:
Install it by running (assuming that you downloaded the file into current
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-3.2_3.2.8-64453~Ubuntu~lucid_amd64.deb
And run it:
If you never used it before, read documentation:
Set memory to recommended minimum for your version of Windows (in order to
preserve as much as possible memory for Linux host) and then install Windows in
it; then install your software (and the driver), plug-in your device and that's
it. This isn't perfect solution, but it is better than dual-boot.
If you have any question about VirtualBox please ask them at
