Windows 7: Adding a device that is not installed

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Adding a device that is not installed


I have W7 Pro 64 and have installed XP Mode and Virtual PC.

As I understand it the tutorials show how to add a device to Virtual PC that is already installed in Windows 7, but I have a printer and scanner that are not and cannot be installed as there are no 64bit drivers.

Is there a tutorial that shows how to add a device that is not installed in W7, both are USB devices.
