WIndows 10 host Mac OS 9 guest using USB Scanner

Post by phed »

I have Windows 10 as the host.
My QEMU guest is MacOS 9.2.2.
Any suggestion on how to use a USB scanner in the MacOS guest?
Thanks!

Hi,

Do you have drivers for the scanner for Mac OS 9.2?
There is a serious issue when passing through USB devices that is not solved yet.

If you want to try, add something like

-device usb-host,vendorid=0x06cd,productid=0x0110

to your command line. Please note you have to find the vendor and product ids for your scanner in the windows device manager or an online usb vendor and product id database.

Yes, I have the driver.
What do you mean "not solved yet"?
Is it possible to do a hot plug and unplug inside MacOS guest? That is plug the scanner after launched QEMU.
Thanks!

It would go too far to explain to you in detail what is still not solved. Lets say some usb traffic is not handled correctly by Qemu.

Hot plugging should be possible once you started Qemu with the adjusted command line example above.
I would be better to start with the device plugged in when experimenting with pass through.
