[DeleGate-En] Re: minimum neccessary libs

VMware workstation 6 (for windows) fully supports USB 2.0 in VMs. I
believe workstation version 5 supports USB 1.0. Neither will support USB
at all if you enable the "ESX server" compatibility option when you
create the VM.

I am able to copy to USB thumb drives and CF cards in a USB card reader
from FreeBSD 6.2 in a VM running on VMware 6.0 workstation. VMware won't
even let me add a USB device to a VM with "ESX server" compatility

Thank you for your offer.  I have several free USB disks including 32MB
flash and 4GB/8GB HDD.  Can I use them for VMware, on Windows ?
