    VM Fusion print question...
    I have my Epson printer connected and can print in either MacOSX or Windows as long as I click on the USB connector each time in Windows mode, then click it to disconnect to print in Mac.

    How can I set it up to print in either OS without having to connect, un-connect each time? If it is set to "Connected" on the Windows side, Mac gets a communications error.

    I think the unfortunate answer is "you can't." Fusion gives complete control of the USB port to the Operating System you choose.

    One thing you could do, however, is set up printer sharing on the Windows OS, and map 2 printers on the Mac. Of course, then you still have to choose which printer to use when you are on the Mac, and that still results in a manual process.
