Default desktop manager through parallels

Please Login to Remove!

as we all know there is no desktop software for the mac, so i am using desktop softer 4.7 on my XP through parallels, and it is not reading my USB connection. could it be a bug in 4.7? should i try a lower version? or is it simply because i am using parallels and it is not reading the USB?

Lots of problems with Parallels have been reported here. Try VMWare Fusion. There is also a tool to convert your Parallels virtual machine to VMWare.

oAXE, if you are using your BlackBerry with a Mac, you should be posting in the Mac Users section. I've moved a few of your threads.

I agree with the recommendation for VMware Fusion. It is reported to be a lot less problematic than Parallels.
