I can't get USB devices other than the mouse and keyboard to work in Windows under VMware.
I have Ubuntu Intrepid as my host operating system, and Windows XP Service Pack 2 as the guest operating system. I'm using VMware Server 2.0 for Linux.
Ubuntu and several other distributions have dropped /proc/bus/usb in favour of using something else. VMware has not updated VMWare Server to use the new usb path, and have a workaround listed here:
Even with that workaround, my guest Windows OS still doesn't detect any USB devices that are working fine in Linux.
Does anyone have an idea of what else might be the problem?
