USB device is not recocogonised

by ukesh1 / September 11, 2010 4:28 PM PDT

I'm currently running windows 7 as my main OS. But i needed windows xp for my project work. So I installed Xp using virtual machine and it installed perfectly. I wanted to connect an micro controller board via usb port. I installed the usb driver for the board successfully but Win xp is not recognizing the board. Any idea of what might be the problem ? I will give the link of the usb driver file for reference.

"Bad request"

That's what the link gives.

I don't have XP MODE up at the moment but when I connected my old USB Microscope to use under XP MODE I had to use the XP MODE MENU item to attach the USB device to the XP MODE virtual machine.

It's possible it is a non-standard USB.

It worked here because the USB identifiers were working. If some maker decided to do something non-standard then XP MODE would not work.

HOWEVER I see this is a VCP so for XP MODE I would not attach to the USB device but the COM port. Let's find an article about that.

But first, I see from your link they have the VCP for 7 so 7 hosts the VCP and then the XP MODE uses the COM port.

More at link following this: "If the serial ports work under Windows 7 you should just be able to go to VM settings and say Com1 is connected to this port and Com2 is connected to that port - but the VM only sees two emulated Com ports."

Interesting that XP MODE is good for only 2 COM ports.
