Hello! I'm running Parallels to use WinXP on my macbook and for some reason cannot view my external hd in winxp. I connected the hd to a windows machine, and it was detected just fine. I changed the settings in the USB Controller in Parallels to "autoconnect on". When I start up WinXP, it then detects it, however it says another process is blocking the device.

Does anyone have any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks
