The USB ID suggests that this is a JMicron JMS569 bridge. Some newer 
JMicron bridges work with '-d sat', older should work with some '-d 
usbjmicron[,...]' (see man page).

Did you test any of these?
If some '-d ...' work, we could add this USB Id to the drive database.

Don't test on a production machine. There were reports that drives were 
disconnected by the OS after issuing an unsupported SCSI command.

Which kind of USB device is involved here?
Is RAID support actually build in the USB bridge?
Otherwise it may be a device with a JMB39X behind the JMS569.
