    First, do not post in large fonts! I reduced the font size of your message to a normal size.

    To see the port that a USB device is using, run this command before you plug the device in.
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Then when you plug in the device, it will show the system messages associated with that device. One of them should be the /dev/ttyx of the device. To escape the messages, use the Ctrl+c keys.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
