Does USB hubs have a Vendor and product ID - how to identify?
Posted on 2013-06-20
I have a W7 VM in VMware Workstation 9. A USB hub is attached to the computer and I want the HUB to only connect to the VM, not the host. Is it possible to identidy vendor and product ID of the hub? I have different iPhones that doesn't show up in the VM even though I've chosen to enable automatically connect USB-devices. They show up in the host but not in the VM. I'm not even able to connect them manually (they don't show up in "removable devices").
The purpose of this is to use the VM as a "erasure-unit" for smartphones. We are recieving new phones every day, so it's never the same device that is beeing connected.
