If I download VirtualBox so that Windows XP is held as the guest OS and I then download ActiveSync can I synchronise my handheld, iPAQ 114, with Outlook 2007 held on the host OS which is Windows 7?

Yes you will need to install the VirtualBox guest additions.

Most USB devices are supported.

But on occasion some USB printers and Scanners are not.

How can I find out if my device is supported?
Test and install it?
