    musiconsult Lurker

       

      Hello

       

       

      I am trying to connect my USB device Garmin 496 to my XP running unter VM. The device is not recognized. I can not update driver and so on.

       

       

      it is just not connecting.

       

       

      The device is detected well under: Win XP, Win Vista, Bootcam (Win XP) and under Mac OS

       

       

       

       

       

      But not under the Virtual Machine

       

       

       

       

       

      I found in this formum several questions for the  same problem ...but no real answers.

       

       

       

       

       

      Here are the system details

       

       

       

       

       

      Hardware:

       

       

      Apple Mac Book, 4GB RAM, 160 GB HD.

       

       

      GPS Garmin 496 (flight navigation GPS), USB cable. Device similar as GPS Garmin 296, 295, 495

       

       

       

       

       

      OS:

       

       

      1) Mac OS. Leopard, all current updates 2) Windows XP Home , all current updatres and SP's (SP3).

       

       

      VM Fusion, current version  (as by 11.2008)

       

       

       

       

       

      Final Application

       

       

      Software is Flight Planner, which has a mode to transfer flight plans to the Garmin GPS.

       

       

      But this only works if the USB device is recognized and properly installed under Win XP

       

       

       

       

       

      Btw: Under Parrallel Desktop on another mac I have the same problem with the Garmin GPS 496. here is says "Device is used by another process"

       

       

       

       

       

      Thank you for any help
