Another possibility would be to delete the BB from the Windoze system and let it re-install it when you connect. Maybe something in the system is causing a conflict with the port.
One other thing, although you've probably tried this, would be to manually connect/disconnect the BB throught the USB icon in Parallels. If Parallels keeps the connection, it's most likely on the windoze side. If the MacOS were stealing the post, Parallels wouldn't be able to reconnect the BB and you'd get the "WAIT" message.
Did you try to connect under BootCamp or on a windoze machine? Is it possible you have a bad cable or USB port on the BB?
Trying an older version of DM is my next step I guess, was just hoping someone would find something dumb I was doing....but it appears not. Also like you mentioned, I tried allowing Windows to automatically recognize it, manually doing it, etc., etc.
Also, I did connect it to a Boot Camp install of XP on my other laptop and it connected right away (and stayed connected) with no problems. Oh well, looks like it's back to an older version of DM. Thanks for the help.
