Hi Experts,

In my network i have thin cliënts. The users login to a Windows 2008 terminal server session. When they connect a memory stick to the thin cliënt, it doesn't show up in the TS session. Also laptop users have this problem. So it's not a thin cliënt problem.

How can I fix this problem? I want the users to be able to use their usb devices in the terminal services sessions.

In the Remote Desktop Client of Windows 7, when you start it but before you connect to the server, you can set it's options under the local resources tab, section "Local Devices and resources", "More". Here you can tell what local resources should be forwarded to the TS desktop. After that when you connect to the server you should have those resources available, provided those options aren't also disabled on the server (via Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration under the Client Tab).

How you enable those features on your thin client will probably depend on their configuration. Maybe you need to check their manual.
