    surely this is going to be almost everything, since bootcamp turns your Mac into an Actual Windows computer, ao it will run all the hardware a WINDOWS PC will run. Whereas Parallels has limited USB support, so it will not. Also, I am guessing, maybe your USB no brand memory doesn't work in Windows as it is Mac format?

    just wondering, if I can potentially resolve my issues, using bootcamp, before going to the time and trouble of trying it.

    I have Logitech USB 350 headset, does not work in PW - I use it in Bootcamp, no problem. I hear the same is true with other headsets.

    As I said, yes. If it runs on a PC it will run on BC. The only problems with BC that have been encountered are problems with drivers for Mac hardware - isight etc. So if you need windows for a particular piece of hardware (that presumably only runs on a windows PC), then BC will run it too.
