Please see the page on the Wine Wiki for USB devices.

What you may be trying to do may not be possible through Wine as it
runs as a user space program and most of these are restricted from
direct acces to hardware devices.  This restriction does not exist or
is allowed in Windows for specific users and/or programs.
