USB ohne OS X Treiber nutzen

Postby elch » 9. Feb 2019, 16:09

Hallo Ihr Experten,

Gibt es eine Lösung für folgendes Problem?

Ich betreibe eine VM mit Windows 2010 auf OS X 10.10.5.
Auf Windows habe ich den Treiber für einen USB-Diascanner installiert, kann ihn dort nun aber nicht ansteuern und vermute, dass es daran liegt, dass es keinen Treiber für OS X gibt.

Besteht irgendeine Möglichkeit, die VM dazu zu bringen, Windwos-Gerätetreiber und OS X USB-Port zusammenzubringen, auch wenn OS X das USB-Gerät gar nicht erst erkennt?

Ich bin gespannt.

Your suspicion is not correct. You don't need to have drivers for a device in your host in order to use it in your guest. I've got a signal analyzer that has drivers only for Win2K, can't use it on OSX (my host). I can use it just fine on a Win2K VM. Same with an A/V converter.

The control of your device is a different problem. Scanners/printers are a bit "difficult" to work inside a VM for some unknown reason. It might help if you post the details of your setup (USB2/3, hub) and details of your VM.
