It should be detected by driver and frontend is also created but it will 
not still work. Tuning fails always. Your device has MXL5005 tuner that 
is not working yet with this driver. MXL5003 devices are working and 
thats why I think there is only minor configuration error, probably 
wrong GPIO or wrong tuner settings.
I can fix this in small time if you or someone else can take USB-sniff 
from Windows.

Yes, that it is. Also dmesg-command will show a lot information from 
device after it is plugged.
