Well I'll be darned! I added the USB. Started XP. Let it install the drivers. Shut down XP. Restarted Parallels. Let XP boot, then plugged in the printer AFTER booting. And it worked, just printed a test page. Now to try my all in one that only scan under windows. I'll report if it works.
Oh and the printer was a Brother HL-1440.
Rather than have a new post, i will edi tthis one. So I tried my Epson Cx-3810, it will only scan if you are useing windows. I got it for free as a bundle with my Macbook. So it finds it, installs drivers, but it can't really connect to it. Windows shows it as "Ready" but the Epson software can't get a connection. I can't print a test page either. Some kind of comunication needs to be passed. I am holding out for the full version until i can verify that i can use the scan function of the printer in the VM.
