Host: Vista, Guest: XP - using guest for MP3 player?

    I haven't installed the virtual PC yet, but plan to if I can use the guest
    to work with my zen micro mp3 player. The program for my mp3 player is not
    compatible for vista, so I thought that this would be a good solution. But
    I've heard that USB doesn't work with the virtual pc... so will my idea not
    work? And is just a bad idea in general?

    I may be completely wrong here, but unless your mp3 player connects to
    your host and is seen as just another "hard drive" to explore you can't
    use VPC with the player. VPC doesn't support USB. You can try VMWare
    though. If your player connects as a "drive" and gets a host drive
    letter, then you can use the sharing capabilities between host and guest
    to connect to the player.

    As you can probably tell, I don't own an mp3 player - isn't compatabile
    with my hearing aids. :)
