Usb support for VMware fusion and OS X Lion
  

Upgraded to lion os. The only trouble I am having is when I try to install my jump drive will not install the software and see the disk (with Windows 7 with all the latest updates.) Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I have the similar trouble. Mac OS 10.7, VMware Fusion 3.1.3 with Windows XP. My USB device worked fine prior to the installation of a lion, and now do not work. Tried to restart and disconnect and reconnect the devices

That is accurate, on the other hand, done an authorized count, however certainly seems to be fixing the matter more often than not, and where it does not, then things have to examine more cautiously to observe that there other ordinary denominators after having risen to a new-fangled operating system. From time to time it can be another application that is installed on the system which is not in the others as an example, an unknown problem that causes a cascade effect of creating troubles with other processes. The conclusion, common sense dictates that you try an array of five minutes before spending many hours to find the solution of five minutes is what they have worked in the first place. If the uninstall / reinstall did not then you can scroll through the other branches of the tree of diagnosis.

I?m running the same units and regular as the passport and the thumb works well. One Touch USB scanner also running 7400 and 3 USB to CAN dongles that does not work anymore, unless I plug it in and start VM. There must be something simple because it also tested with and works with all parallel. We will also see what makes virtual box.

Are typical lazy re-install/reboot/unplug/kick software industry just things to fix the problems instead of finding out what is really broken and clear for some people does not help? I'm not sure what you mean "when it shows" - that would be official enough.

Yes - I keep an installation of equally products; in view of the fact that they are generally leapfrog each other, especially when things break

I still uninstall / reinstall VMware Fusion and restart your Mac after you, even if not prompted, and then try again. Also prior to returning to make sure that the MD5 or SHA1 checksum matches what is published in the downloaded file.
Code:
VMware Fusion 3.1.3 (for Intel-based Macs)
File name: VMware-Fusion-3.1.3-416484.dmg
File size: 437M
File type: .dmg
Version: 3.1.3
MD5SUM: e19e5a2487955a5e60a2a4dc7e2b9096
SHA1SUM: 48edc8b598d1fe0876e8fbb34c2a257339946047
 VMware Fusion 3.1.3 Light for Mac (for Intel-based Macs)
File name: VMware-Fusion-3.1.3-416484-light.dmg
File size: 150M

re: Usb support for VMware fusion and OS X Lion

I have a explanation to the trouble that many customers have been considering. One thing that can prevent the merger of USB support is working non-standard permissions on the root partition of your installation of OS X.

Code:
 
  1. Turn off the merger.
  2. In a Terminal (/ Applications / Utilities / Terminal.app)
  3. Run "sudo-s"
  4. run "chown root: wheel /"
  5. Execute "chmod 755 /"
  6. Restart
  7. Start Fusion and try to connect a USB device
