USB h/w not support by my RHEL 5.8 Linux in my VMware workstaion 8
 
Hi,

I have installed RHEL 5.8 in my Vmware Workstaion 8.0 and it has installed properly but when i tried to connect 2-3 USB h/w to this VM ware machine but it not detact.

I have checked on other VMware image (which also installed in this same machine) and they are detact the USb drives.

Since you have two VM instances working, have you compared the two, to see what's different??? There are obviously some differences between them. Also, if you have two VM instances running on the same hardware at the same time, only ONE will be able to use the USB ports...
