    i dont get this, i followed the steps on parallels website where you turn off USB auto connect, load up the VM and go to devices and chose my USB drive to access it but its no go

    funnily enough despite the mouse working just fine, i cant access that either lol

    but the USB drive definately does not work in parallels. which is annoying

    I've had a lot of problems with this as well. I have an iMac, and I noticed it would work if the USB device was plugged in the back of the iMac and not through the keyboard.

    Have up updated Parellels recently?

    Edit: Just updated and it works perfectly now!
