Windows 7: USB device attach/ release in virtual XP mode

USB device attach/ release in virtual XP mode


Is it possible to delay the USB device attach/ release menu in the virtual XP mode.

I have a USB device which has four ports (like a USB hub but it is a special device, USB analog adapter) Normally every ports can be seen as a separate USB device. The problem is: I cannot get all 4 USB devices to be seen and recognized under the USB menu in the Windows XP mode. I unplug this USB device wait 5 seconds and plug it back in. I then see all 4 USB devices in the USB drop down menu as expected. I attach one device successfully and then immediately the other three adapters disappear as choices to attach. There is no way they ever appear again. If I unplug the device again, I lose my attached devices and again see all four devices as choices. I can only choose one device maximum.

How can I solve this issue? Could you please help me?

What you are asking would be very useful for many people (including myself and my blasted CCTV Server!).

Is is however impossible to do without some substancial hacking.

Sorry to douse your ambition.
