I think this has nothing to do with your device name not showing up. I've already
successfully attached devices that had no name showing up in virt-manager to a VM.
However, if you're using recent packages versions from the virt-preview or rawhide,
I've recently pinpointed a permission problem with USB passthrough that results in the
behaviour you're describing. No fix yet, but that's a part of the game when using
development versions :)

Subject: [fedora-virt] Why is name not shown in Add Hardware for USB device?
If I go to "Add Hardware" in virt-manager and select USB host device, I get a
dialog with a list of things similar to lsusb output, but some of the entries are blank.
For instance, lsusb shows:
Bus 003 Device 022: ID 046d:0825 Logitech, Inc. Webcam C270
but the usb device dialog only shows Bus 3 device 22 with no description for logitech
Is this a hint that usb passthrough won't work for this?
Certainly if I select the bus 3 device 22 item, I can attach it, but the Windows 7 virtual
machine doesn't see anything show up.
Anyone gotten a webcam like this to work with qemu?
