I am trying to setup passthrough correctly, but am a little confused.  Can someone please clarify from the screenshoot which selections I should be making?

I have added it in pass through mode and it is running.  I have also added it as a PCI in the VM hardware. screen shot: trying to add usb external drive

Got it thanks.  The first article you sent states that you can only select 2 devices at a time.  When I selected only the USB2 device, everything worked.  Thanks again!
