Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate Virtual XP USB drivers

Windows 7 Ultimate Virtual XP USB drivers

Hi,

Loaded Virtual XP on Windows 7 Ultimate and doing so the program delected all my USB drivers and substituted Virtual USBC drivers which do not recognize my USB ports or attachments.
I tried deleting and reloading the original motherboard drivers for USB 2 and 3 and the
Virtual XP does not regonize them either within device manager. The USB drivers on the
Windows 7 Ultimate work but the Virtual XP does not. Does anyone have a solution for this one.

Thanks,
Walt

Hi Walt.
Virtual XP does not use you motherboard drivers. On virtual XP select Tools Enable enable integration features. The USB should then be loaded from the XP machines USB tab.

I found the tools option button but there is nothing which states to activate USBs, when I look at the USB tab it's blank yet I have several attachments to my USB Hub and none are listed.

If I surfed using XP Mode would that be considered to be in a virtual Box?

You can pull up a browser within the Virtual XP and surf all night long, or you can switch back to Windows 7 and surf the whole day.

Click the USB tab and enable the USB drive (you make have to remove and replace the drive for windows to see it).

I am just curious that if I am in Xp mode surfing and happen to catch some nasty stuff can it get out of the VM?

I opened integration and itís auto enabled. Then I clicked on USB TAB in windows mode and I get ( No device found) and thatís as far as I can take it. All the USB on the Win 7 Ultimate side are working and visible in device manager and printers and devices, all drivers are working.


I also can't attach the pictures of the word doc I have to show this the attach option is not working.
How do I attach a photo of this to our post?

Gary if you go surfing at night there is always a posibility of a Great White Shark giving you some nasty stuff.
