I would like to contribute with logs/snoops too, but I have problems 
compiling usbreplay like mentioned on the webpage in Markus post.
I always get this errormessage and have no idea which usb.h usbreplay 
might want to use. If it helps in finding an answer, I am using an 
almost vanilla kernel (just a few patches for suspend2, 
centrino undervolting and internal sd-card reader) on an ubuntu dapper 

gcc usbreplay.c -o usbreplay -lusb -lmenu
usbreplay.c:29:17: Fehler: usb.h: No such file or directory

As usbview info for the adapter is also requested here is what usbview 
reveals for my MSI MEga Sky 580:
