USBPcap (and the capture mechanisms built into some other OSes) don't know or care that there's no driver.

However, with no driver, the amount of USB traffic that will go to the device is limited.

So you may capture a small amount of traffic if the OS is, for example, probing the device to determine what type of device it is, in order to see if it has a driver for it, but that's about it.

The solution is "load a driver for the device"; you can't capture traffic that doesn't exist.
