    Apple Modem still does not work. Can get it to respond first time only but then get BSOD on an attempt to use it. Thereafter modem does not respond after reboot.

    I've been having the same problem. I bought parallels to connect to my corporate network which requires a smartcard. I've been unable to get it to connect (latest build tested was 3186). I've also tried another brand of USB cardreader with simular problems.

    Philips TSU7500 Not Working

    Just to add my show-stopper:

    Device: Philips TSU7500 Remote Control
    MFR: Philips Consumer Electronics Company
    OS: Windows XP SP2, latest patches
    Symptom: XP installs driver just fine, gets the "USB Connected" chime, but Pronto Pro Edit software reports that the device is not supported. Works fine under Boot Camp.

    This has been the same since I first started using Parallels months ago, and is still with me in the latest release.

    X10 CM15A ActiveHome Pro

    The ActiveHome software can't read the time from the device; when I try to download to it, it takes many minutes (versus a couple of seconds on a real Windows machine) and doesn't seem to actually affect the device (sometimes with error messages, sometimes without).

    Build 3188.

    I am also having problems printing to my R2400 usb. I'm using a 24" imac, Windows XP sp2, Build 3188. No response from parallels e-mail support.

    Sansa Mp3 player, Windows will detect it but none of the programs it works with will detect it. So frustrating!

    Sony Ericsson p910a can work with Parallels

    I have build 3212, and I would like to inform everyone that after days of struggling with the syncing situation between my p910a Sony Ericsson phone and my MacBook, I have finally got them working together flawlessly. Here is what I did, if it helps:

    - Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2 w/Installation of Bonjour -- I don't know if it matters, but it is supposed to help with USB communications
    -Build 3212
    -USB Enabled
    -Autoconnect is off
    -OS Window for viewing -- if it matters since the staff guy said it may

    1. Originally installed all Sony apps, and nothing work at all.
    2. Uninstalled all the Sony apps and started over.
    3. I first started with downloading the phone dock driver from Sony website.
    4. Plugged in the dock into a USB port and it detected new hardware (SEMC DSS SyncStation) once I manually selected it from the VM (Virtual Machine) USB list in the bottom right list of icons.
    5. Pointed the Install Wizard to the correct folder (DSS folder) that contained the drivers.
    6. The install wizard popped up again with another new hardware called, as well as my memory recalls, a USB Serial Port, so I pointed to the same DDS folder to install the other driver. Then it finished.
    7. Then I downloaded and installed the Sony Ericsson PC Suite from the website.
    8. Restarted the OS.
    9. Then I made sure the USB device was checked in the VM icon on the bottom right part of parallels.
    10. Then I double clicked on the sync icon (two opposite pointing arrows) in the Windows XP Tray and checked the USB connect.
    11. Plugged in my phone and it worked.

    I tried to remember everything for you guys out there. I hope it helps.

    still not working

    Just installed the latest as of December 6 2007 (v3.0 build 5580) and STILL does not work. It gets further than it did before, but erroneously reports that "The battery level of the connected device is too low to start download or upload." even when it's plugged into the AC adapter.

    Folks: VMWare works PERFECTLY, i suggest you use that. Parallels guys: we need this, so we are forced to use your competitor's product??

    Another broken USB device... *sigh*

    MSP430 USB-Debug-Interface. It's a JTAG debugger. Sadly our client is using it so I have to use it as well. When I plug it in to Parallels (either with automatic or from the USB menu) it crashes the machine hard (kernel crash). Brings the whole Mac down and requires a hard power-off and restart.

    Anyone have any clue what's wrong or a work-around?

    Symptom: "Device in use by another application.."
    Affects: Unable to communicate with device although system recognises presence.

    I guess someone has just conveniently forgotten about this problem?
