Maybe I wasn't clear on this.  The \begin{bibunit}...\putbib[]
\end{bibunit} commands should be *inside* your included chapter (as I
showed above.)  And they should completely enclose all of the text of
your chapter.  So you can't \include text that has citations in it
*outside* of the bibunit environment; any text containing citations
for that chapter *must* be inside the bibunit environment.

So each chapter should look like this:

\chapter{...}
\begin{bibunit}[IEEEtran]

all of the text of your chapter here

\putbib[...]
\end{bibunit}

You then \include this chapter into your root file.

Have you tried a simple document using bibunits and gotten it to
