I'm using VMWare Player in my Linux Mint 4.0 on my notebook. I install Windows XP Profesional in the VMWare. But I encounter some problems.
- Usually after I finish using Windows XP, I just suspend the system by close VMWare program. The problem happenned when I tried to load the Windows XP again. It takes so long to start. But, if close Windows XP by shutting down the system, and load again on the other time, the Windows XP loads quite fast (normal).
- I always have a problem with my usb drive in VMWare. If the Windows XP is a fresh from start (not from suspend), the VMWare can detect my usb drive once I plug into my notebook. But, after I remove it, and plug it again, the VMWare seems don't want to detect my usb drive.
These 2 problems are the most annoying problems in VMWare. Before using Linux Mint 4.0, I used PCLinux OS 2007, and I used VMWare as well. But I've never encountered these problem with PCLinuxOS.
Is there anyone ever encounter these problems before and how to solve them ?
