so how do i fix it then???
Check for Updates from the Help menu and upgrade to build 3214 or higher for Parallels 2, or build 4128 or higher for Parallels 3.0.
toadstool, it may be fixed for some but for others we still have the same irritating problem.
OS X 10.4.10, Parallels 3.0 (5160)
Update for what it's worth...
I've had this persistent problem since originally installing Parallels. Contacted Parallels support and have tried a number of different updates and USB/Serial Interfaces.
Now running Build 5158 Release Candidate 2 of Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac on a 15" MacBook Pro with no resolution. Parallels Support acknowledges this is a bug that will be fixed. No info on when the fix will be ready.
Have you tried the workaround where you open the Parallels application and then select the appropriate configuration file?
Not sure I know which workaround you're referring to... do you have a reference or URL? I have selected the device within the Parallels App and seen the same results... it certainly is consistent.
I reference old builds, but give it a try. http://forums.parallels.com/showthread.php?p=71216
Thanks for the reference Eru. I heard this workaround can work on pre-3.0 versions of Parallels... unfortunately, I heard AFTER I updated to 3.0. Unless I don't understand what it means to open the Parallels.app... the Application... I've been around this block many times. No luck. Thanks for taking the time to reply though.
My solution was switching back to 10.4.9.
VMWare-Fusion - 10.4.10 - USB - No Problem
Hmm... I think you are getting it, it just means not to open the .pvs file directly. Have you tried upgrading to 5160? Also, what are your settings for when a USB device is connected? Ask user, auto-connect to VM, or no action?
If you've upgraded to the latest build and tried workarounds to no avail, try deleting your virtual machine and starting from scratch. After much frustration, those 5 minutes allowed me to use the USB ports in Parallels.
Anyone still having problems with this? I'm running 3.0 build 5160 and can not get a Garmin device to work properly at all.
This is unbelievably frustrating.
It seems most of the people having problems were running 2.5, but I'm on 3.0 and it still doesn't work.
Anyone come up with a viable work-around?
Jason, I'm still having the same problem ( Macbook & iMac, OS x 10.4.10, PD 5160). I'm not sure I want to go through the effort of re-installing the VM. The bit that annoys me (and has done for a while) is that it used to work.
Yes, I agree. Deleting and re-installing is not something I really want to do.
And, mine worked twice I believe. Once back when I first installed it, then once again a few weeks ago. Other than that it has been nothing but headaches.
Try re-installing Parallels... Delete. Restart. Install.
If you use their un-installer it won't delete your .hdd file.
In my case, I didn't need to delete/re-install Parallels. All I did was delete the Virtual Machine (and any reference to it) and make a new one. Really just took me 5 minutes to do, and I was so happy that I thought of doing that. It's worked just fine for me since then.
