this usually means that the device is getting power from the usb. host
controllers can disable the line for mis-behaving devices, but otherwise
there's a max per device draw of ~500mA at ~5V.
if you see nothing from dmesg about enumerating bus/hub/whatever then
i'd check that the cable works w/ something else just to be sure that
d+/d- are working (vbus and gnd seem to be working).
