Hi to all,

for the second post but in the previous I forgot the subject line...

what I have: a Debian Lenny 64 bit Dom0 with several VMs (mixed Windows
and Linux VMs) on a Fujitsu Primergy RX300S4.

What I want: in one of the Windows XP Pro VMs I want to have access to an
USB stick.

According to the documentation I have read, I only had to put the lines

usbdevice=[ 'host:058f:6387' ]

to the DomU config file.

Reading in the logs I get an error message:

Warning: could not add USB device ['host:058f:6387']
I/O request not ready: 0, ptr: 0, port: 0, data: 0, count: 0, size: 0

lsusb shows me:

Bus 005 Device 006: ID 058f:6387 Alcor Micro Corp. Transcend JetFlash
Flash Drive
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 1061:0101

Has someone any hints on how to fix this? And how can I add the line
"usbdevice='tablet'" to the other usbdevice line?

Thx in advance for everything on this!
