    Hi, does anybody know if I can use hardware supported only in Windows by running Windows using bootcamp?

    I'm looking at using the Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 which does not have Mac support. Thanks in advance.

    Theoretically, yes. If the USB allows pass-through, then the drivers inside bootcamped Windows should control your device.

    Although. I only say this because I easily got my Zune to work under Parallels, and there's no way I would have got it to work natively in Max OSX.

    Since a bootcamp'd Mac is a PC, there is no reason why it should not work.
