Can you get a log with USB debugging enabled as in Information Gathering for VMware Fusion?
Did you install drivers for this device in OS X? They may be conflicting or otherwise not relinquishing the device.
I have EXACTLY the same problem and it is driving me CRAZY, I have tried everyting to get this working under VMware fusion without any success.
I have a Garmin GPS496 and running 10.5.5 of OS X and version 2.01 of VMware Fusion on a Mac Book Pro and I receive the Device not recognised it works great under Bootcamp and on other installation of Vista on a PC
Is there a fix please as this is extremly urgent I am a Pilot and need to connect my GPS to my flight planing software that ONLY runs under Windows.
I should have mentioned that there are NO OS X drivers for this device
Please get the USB log as requested in the previous post.
at this time I am not able any more to send you those logs, sorry.
I must admit gave this up for the moment. It was just too time consuming, plus I had to pay for both systems, VM AND Parallels, for my trial & errors.
What I did is I reinstalled XP using Bootcamp and my normal Garmin USB drivers. I am running the whole thing under Bootcamp and it works fine. USB driver for Garmin 496 is recognized, flight planner
works and smoothly connects to Garmin 496. So I can transfer my flight plans & WP's to the GPS.
As long here is no stable solution for those kidn of USB devices under VM Fusion and/ or Parallel Desktop I will continue to use Bootcamp.
It is a bit more inconvenient because I can not swicht between Apple US and XP...but it works.
As I said: There are working drivers for XP and for Mac OS for the Garmin 496 GPS. So on those platforms the device is recognized.
But there is some kind of incompatibility with BOTH of the virtual machine(VM & PD)
I followed the instructions to enable USB logging and now Vista will not even start, I am NOT impressed.
I think I will simply use Bootcamp until such time as this product supports USB devices like it should, this is a Joke!
I followed the instructions to enable USB logging and now Vista will not even start
How will it not start - do you get an error message, a black screen, a BSoD, etc.?
Without getting our hands on this device or a USB log, there's no way we can fix this or even know what's going on.
Just a black screen, I fixed it by restoring the VMWare directory from Time Machine
