Dfu says "no device present"

After trying to update firmware for Uno r3 (following directions on http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/DFUProgramming8U2/), the Dfu says "no device present" when I try "sudo dfu-programmer at90usb82 erase" in Terminal on 10.9.1 OSX. Please Help!!!

This is what terminal said :
