Hey guys.

I work with a company who designs hardware for the Windows OS.

We are trying to see if virtualization can port our hardware to work in Mac and Linux.

Here is how our hardware works and what the problem is-

Our hardware is considered under Windows as an USB Microphone. Our devices ONLY work with our software. If the hardware device is not detected, our software will fail upon startup and close immediately.

Ok, so I plug in a device, then bootup MAC OS X Snow Leopard.
I go to tools and import USB Microphone.

The USB microphone shows up in MAC settings as being present...

I then use WINE to open our Windows based software in the MAC environment. Every time I do this, our software states there is no device detected.

Now, I know there has to be a way to do this and i'm sure it's advanced too, but I really need any type of advanced help in figuring out what is restricting this to work.
