To install a PDA driver in a virtual machine, you must synchronize the PDA with the virtual machine.


  1. Connect the PDA to the host system and synchronize it with the host system.
    The PDA driver should begin installing in the virtual machine.
  2. Allow the virtual machine to install the PDA driver.
  3. If connection warning messages appear, dismiss them.
  4. If the PDA disconnects from the host system before the virtual machine can synchronize with it, synchronize the PDA with the host system again.
    The total time required to load the VMware USB device driver in the host system and install the PDA driver in the virtual machine might exceed the device connection timeout value. A second synchronization attempt usually succeeds.
