    I am trying out the current version of vm Fusion and got the initial setup with XP Pro working. Then, I installed SP2 to the XP vm and then tried to install and connect my USB devices with no luck. No matter what I try, it seems like I can't get it to detect any of my USB 2.0 devices. I searched their web site but nothing I found really helped. Has anyone else had this happen and found a solution or can tell me what I may need to try or do?

    I'm using the current version of Leopard and have 8GB of ram with 2GB allocated to the vm and 30GB for storage.

    Thanks for any help or tips.

    Try removing and re-installing the VMWare tools. I've seen SP2 screw them up before now...
