I have a couple of questions. First is that I am having trouble with USB devices being recognized in parallels. This has happened with two USB sticks. The latest one is an IRda receiver. The receiver works fine on my PC, so I know that is not the problem, but if I plug it in while running parallels, it is not recognized. I have installed the drivers for it, but it still doesnt work. Is there a setting I am missing? When I have my USB mouse plugged in, the mouse works in Parallels. My second issue is that I installed XP via bootcamp and then used that for Parallels. I had to activate in both Parallels and when I switched into bootcamp, but when I tried to activate in bootcamp, I was told that the serial number had already been used too many times. Is there a way around this? Have other people had similar problems with this? Thanks.
