How to Use a USB device in a virtual machine

Windows Virtual PC supports the use of USB 2.0 devices, either by sharing the device or by redirecting the device to the virtual machine. The method you use will depend on which type of USB device you intend to use. When integration components are installed in the Virtual Windows XP, storage devices are automatically shared with virtual machines on a physical computer. For other types of devices like WebCams, Wireless network adapters, PDA’s and mp3 players, you can use redirection.

To redirect a USB device to a virtual machine:
• Attach the device to the computer and turn on the device.
• From the virtual machine window, click on USB and then click on Attach ‘<device name>’.
• After the device driver is installed, you can use the USB device from within the virtual machine the same way as you would on a physical computer. However, USB devices that are connected using these steps cannot be shared, so they must be released from one operating system to be available for use on the other operating system.
• To make the USB device available back on your host Windows 7 installation, release it from the virtual machine. From the virtual machine window, click on USB and then click on ‘Release <device name>’.
