    Running SUSE 10.0 Native and Windows XP guest --cannot attach a USB floppy drive to the Guest machine either as a "Floppy Drive" or as any sort of "rremovable USB drive".

    SUSE 10.0 Host sees the drive with no problem and can read / write to it..

    This is not a major problem - the only reason I use this is that I have an old bootable copy of DRIVEIMAGE 2002 which I use for saving my "Partition Images" as it can write to NTFS file systems so I can save my VM OS to a "Real networked" Windows machine.

    (Being Sunday morning I'm trying to really test Parallels as much as possible to find out any potential problems before "Wiping" my Windows real machine).
