Windows 7: XP vm freezes when USB device is plugged in.

XP vm freezes when USB device is plugged in.

I have an Amazon.com: XITEL HiFi-Link For PC and Mac: Electronics

It's a USB sound card.

I have used it on an XP machine, and a Win7 machine without issues. If I try to connect to to my Win7 machine, giving my XP machine exclusive use of the USB device, XP locks up!

Any guess as to what to do to prevent the lockup?

64 bit XP drivers for the sound card?

Pure plug and play. No drivers provided.

YES but does it support XP 64 bit? Most stuff does not.

I never tried it on a 64bit ver, I only had 32 when I used it last time...

Do'H! I just realized, it works in Win7 x64, so it seems to me that it implies that it will run in XPx64!

Not at all, Windows XP64 was based on a server OS, not many peripherals are supported.

I tried doing a fresh install, I turned off the audio, and had the device plugged in during the install...

I also got this response when I emailed for help:

The AN1 uses the generic Windows USB audio drivers. Both 1 and 2 have actual drivers and an interface layer. When you’re running a virtual OS, the underlying drivers may not be present which can cause the OS to lock as the interface layer tries to initialize. We do not support any virtualized systems because of this.

All the best,

Xitel Support.

OK Crazy idea, can you install XP 64 on another PC, plug the USB card in and then copy the drivers it loads to a flash drive then you can copy them back to the virtual XP64? I told you it was crazy.

What drivers? All the drivers are internal to Winders... Or am I misunderstanding your accent? :P
