    Through the new USB virtualization in Win7 Virtual PC Windows XP Mode (not present in Virtual PC 2007), you are able to use old legacy hardware devices that do not have Win7 drivers, instead of throwing them for recycling. For example, XP Mode pumped 'new life' in an old all-in-one printer-scanner I have that didn't work under Vista or Windows 7 due to lack of drivers (and XP drivers didn't work on newer Windows). It now works perfectly well under Virtual Windows XP mode in Win7, with the old XP drivers installed under Virtual Windows XP. One can easily move scanned documents and images (scanned in XP Mode) and documents for printing (generated in Win7) between Win7 and Virtual WinXP.

    it's new and likely comes with the latest firmware, as I doubt there are new pre-2008/2009 drives still around for sale. why do you want a Sony? There are also the Dell OEM UJ-210/220--equally good. I would only ask the seller if their drives are Made in Japan!

    Nice. Do you know if this also allows Firewire to work? What's the difference between USB and regular virtualization?

    All the "good" replies I came up with to the paparoach would only be funny to those who know and love me. Anyone else would probably throw rocks at me so I am "still trying" to prevent myself from a comeback. lol
    By the way, #8 great grandchild dropped yesterday. Victoria, with 3 big brothers who are thrilled.

    I guess I'm trying to find a brand new one that will allow a future firmware availability that will work in the HDX. Preferable the UJ 220, but I'd be willing to look at either. Id think an updated firmware for the UJ 220 though would make it even faster.

    No firewire won't work in Win7 XP mode. USB virtualization refers to win7's XP mode USB virtual drivers.
