    Hello,

    I am not able to use one of my USB devices in Parallels. It's a Nintendo development hardware device, and I'm trying to develop on my mac. The device is selectable from teh Parallels menu, and it makes the regular Windows "device-connected" sound when I plug it in, but the software that is supposed to connect to it just hangs.

    I suppose there's no hope of getting this thing to work? I tried upgrading to Parallels 3.0, (there goes $65) but it doesn't do anything different.

    Any suggestions are appreciated!
    Bob

    hi,
    did you try to use soft for your device on host Windows system (not through Parallels)?

    what is 'soft'?

    I am able to use the device if I just boot into windows via Boot Camp, if that is what you are asking.

    Is it a flash cart by any chance?
    I have the same issue with a flash cart: can't make it to work under parallels...

    no, it's a hardware development box.
