TIP: Configuring a scanner in VirtualBox

Filed under: Virtualization — acidborg @ 13:32

Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours finding out why a HP Deskjet 2050 wasn’t working on a virtualized Windowx XP using VirtualBox. It seems that VirtualBox’s scanner support is far from complete, so some scanners aren’t supported at all. I was lucky and I could manage my scanner to work.

TIP: If you disable the “Enable USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller”, some scanners may run on a virtualized Windows XP.

VirtualBox disable EHCI USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller option
