One of my local friends has since mentioned VirtualBox, after I told him I had gotten this to run in VMWare Player.just brew it! wrote:I don't know about either of those two, but I can say that the USB pass-through feature of VirtualBox works. Its USB support is rather slow, but as long as you're not moving tons of data it gets the job done.
