Check the Vendor of your USB device under the Devices and Volumes tab of Apple System Profiler; mine looks like:

Product ID: 4 ($4)
Vendor: Carry Computer Eng., Co., Ltd.
Driver version: Not available
Driver name: Not available
Power (mA): 500 ($1f4)
Release number: 80.0
Serial number:

... when run from the GUI, and:

USB Bus 1 (ATI)
Product ID = 4x
Vendor ID = 1996x
Class ID = 255x
Subclass ID = 255x
Protocol = 255x
Bus power available = 500 Ma

... when AppleSystemProfiler -u is run from a Terminal shell.

Driver name/version info is often missing in ASP; kmodstat output is more informative:

Id Refs Address Size Wired Name (Version)
62 0 0x16d63000 0x2a000 0x29000 CarryRD.IOKitUsbReader (1.0.1d1)
