New here and hope you can help. I run a few old apps in XP as they were never migrated to
Vista. For a few years I've been using XP mode in Windows 7 and this has worked just fine. My pc was making too many worrying noises so I've got a new one and also a new copy of Windows 7 professional. Having launched Virtual pc and XP mode I find that (1) I can't attach USBs in the new environment and (2) I can't connect to a printer - when I try to "add printer" the system fails to find one despite the fact that I have one connected by USB cable to the host pc and that can print to it ok. I can, however, see the USBs via the My Computer option from the start menu where they are listed at the bottom under "other". I can use this route to transfer files from them into the virtual machine environment. Not exactly seamless integration! My new pc has 2.0 and 3.0 USB ports and I've tried and failed to get the attachment to work on the 2.0 ones. I've reinstalled XP mode several times without success. I wonder whether it might be a network or connectivity problem. Any suggestions. Thanks.
