First off. Which VMWare program are you using? There are some pretty
big differences between the Player/Workstation/Server family and the
ESX(i)/vSphere family of products.
ESX you can pretty much write that idea off unless you have a newer
system that supports Intel's VT-d (or AMD's equivalent). Player is a
bit different if it's a usb device as you can attach to the guest a
Assuming Player, are you *absolutely sure* that you connected the USB
device to the guest per VMware's procedures? If yes, what's the output
of "lsusb"? We need to know *if* it's being seen by the guest at all
to begin with.
