Try a different port, maybe put a USB Hub between. Check if the resistors and diodes for the level shifting are the right ones (measure the resistors, especially if you are not using 5% types). If that does not work, try a different diode/resistor combination (For example, usbasp uses 5v6 zener and 68/2k2 resistor, littlewire 3v6 zener and 27/1k2 resistor. I have seen others too. I had at least one which never worked with my laptop).

These soft-usb-thingies tend to be a bit rough, especially the level conversion seems to be a bit icky :) I have a usbasp which works always and everywhere i tested it just perfectly. One of my littlewires is a bit wonky (it sometimes looses connection and needs a few tries until it works again). Another one works fine, but not on every device.
