Could never pick them up either. Sounds as if we have the identical problem.
Please let me/list know if you find a resolution and I will do the same.

That is what I see.

I have a different problem with USB and the driverloader. but the VM/USB
problem seems to exist whether I have the driverloader installed or not.

In SuSE 9.0 I could talk to USB devices from VM, but only those that were
plugged in when the VM was started. The docs seems to indicate that VM
would pick up hotplugged USB devices but mine never did. (I don't know if
that's related or not.)
