So are you trying to capture low-level USB traffic, i.e. the USB protocol, or do you just want to capture network traffic to the device?

Is that device a wireless network adapter (Wi-Fi, mobile phone, etc.), and are you running on Windows? If so, it might not be supported by WinPcap.

If your usb device is using a windows dialup adapter to connect try using winpcap 3.1 instead of the later versions. I use this to capture traffic from 3g and HSDPA usb modems (dongles).

Note wireshark will capture the data in the dial up connection not the signalling or air interface traffic...that gets expensive.

The ability to capture traffic over a USB interface depends largely on your OS. The following link should provide most of the relevant information to get you started: You might also find some of the information available from this question useful as well.
