[Help] External HDD not working on Virtual PC ( Xp ).
« on: December 15, 2011, 02:40:46 PM »
Hello!

Like the title says.

I don't get my External HDD to work on my Virtual PC.

How to get it working?
I'v tested to put the USB in and out on all my USB ports on my computer. Nothing happens, Only on my Main Win7.

Help? :)

Thanks

First does your normal PC see the drive?

If so then you need to check the settings of virtual PC and tell it to load the USB for it as well :wink:
