I haven't used a USB device with jpilot in a year or two, but back then, 
you had to press the button on the cradle first, and then click on the 
"Sync" button in jpilot. Until the button on the cradle is pressed, the 
device /dev/ttyUSBx doesn't "exist"; it's created when the button is 
pressed, and once the cradle times out or finishes its task, the device 
disappears again.

This is going on vague memories, and may be unrelated to your problem, 
but thought I'd throw it out for you.
