No, Hyper-v does not provide pass-through for most devices.

No, I have tried, Hyper-V does not pass through USB devices.

I have successfully used USB Redirector to access a USB device from within a virtual machine.

There are other products like this, but this is the one I chose.

The device's usb driver must be installed inside the virtual machine.
