I am running a VMWare Server 2.0 with guest OS of Windows XP SP3. I have a NeatCo scanner hooked up via USB 2.0 port. Since VMWare server 2.0 now supports USB 2.0, I am able to get the scanner to be recognized by the guest OS. When I go to scan, it blue screens.
I checked the VMWare forums and most of the posts say to use USB 1.1 since older versions of VMWare don't support USB 2.0. I even updated the chipset drivers on the host PC to see if that helped - no good. Apparently it has to do with the packet sizes between USB 2.0 and 1.1. When I plug in the device, the guest OS suggests using a USB 2.0 port which means to me it's not recognizing the USB 2.0. I also checked the VMWare site for updated USB drivers, but nothing.
I would rather not have to get a USB 1.1 hub to work around this. Any ideas/experiences that may help? Thanks!!
