Windows 7: Windows 10 build 9879 VM - USB problem

Windows 10 build 9879 VM - USB problem

Hi there

Running a Windows 10 VM build 9879 on a W7 Host under VMWARE workstation / vmplayer on a W7 HOST only recognises USB devices attached to the VM at power on. Adding devices gives the connected sound and shows in the VM menu but Windows explorer (now called file explorer in W10) doesn't see them at all.

apart from that (fairly show stopping type of problem - especially if you use a lot of external USB devices) W10 runs OK.

Hopefully this will get fixed .

BTW the same issue crops up also using a W8.1 HOST as well as a W7 HOST.

Cheers
jimbo

Try USB 2 compatability in settings.

Hi there

No difference

It's only the W10 VM that has a USB problem - whatever HOST machine is running VMware. All my other VM's work perfectly whether on an XP / W7 / W8.1 HOST or even a LINUX Host.
