maybe this is not directly related to your problem - but i noticed a
problem also related to usb devices and vmware.
in my case i'm running vmware server 1.0.1-build-29996 on centos 4
x86_64 2.6.9-34.0.2.ELsmp kernel on a dell poweredge 1855 blade.
after removing virtual usb hub device from the win2003 std. server
guest i could not see any usb device on the host anymore while it was
still visible in /proc/bus/usb/devices. fdisk -l shows up nothing.
what solved my little problem here was to rmmod the usb_storage
module and modprobe it afterwards. maybe this can help somebody...
