Any help will be appreaciate.

Thanks a lot

Virtual PCs do not have access to USB ports. Theres no way around that sorry.

Thanks Brad for your suuport!

Do you know any workaround? VirtualBox or VMware? I have an XP Pro as Guest OS under Vista Ultimate. I face this problem when I need to connect my device to run ROM upgrades.

If you know something that works will be really aprreciate.

Thanks in advance.

Eduardo

I have been able to get ROM updates working in Vista by enabling XP compatibility mode on the update file. Not sure if that helps you.

Yep. That´s what I thought initially but didn´t work as well. I tried several times without luck. Anyway, I read that a VMware works. I post my experience later regarding that.

Thanks a lot.

I have just been playing with VituralBox. View easy to setup. I ran Berry Linux from iso and surfed the internet.
I'm going to do an install to virual HD. I have not figured how the settings go for usb devices.

The VitualBox blurb bit says:
USB over RDP. With this unique feature, a virtual machine that acts as an RDP server can still access arbitrary USB devices that are connected on the RDP client. This way, a powerful server machine can virtualize a lot of thin clients that merely need to display RDP data and have USB devices plugged in.

Hi.
           Thanks for your comment. I actually had installed VMware and VirtualBox already and didn´t like both. VMware has turned my Windows Vista unstable for a moment and I discarded completely. I also figured out that it is not compatible as well. Regarding VirtualBox, I tried connect my PDA without luck at all. I tried several times and got nothing. So, I gave up and back to VirtualPC which still has no USB support on 2007 version. 

My experience is unfortunately bad when we treat this subject. I hope Microsoft hear this kind of thing.

Regards,
