As far as USB support goes for WINE, it doesn't work. I set up iTunes a 
while back (11.10/12.04) and tried to get my iPod working with it. 
Unfortunately, after doing all that then looking for any articles 
relating to WINE USB support the answer was no and the alternative 
solution was to setup a virtual machine with USB passthrough.

BUT, looking for an answer today I found this: http://wiki.winehq.org/USB

If it works, please let me know! :)

All the best,
