  • Using USB Devices on TS

    We have just setup a new office interstate and configured all users for TS. A few users use the Olympus DS330 digital voice recorder which, on a normal workstation, when plugged into the USB port, will automatically run the Olympus software which is used to download the voice recordings to the PC for disk storage, forwarding by email, etc.

    I've found that TS does not support this type of USB device and thus have looked into 3rd party solutions. One I've tried is [email protected] (www.intellidriver.com) which seems to work OK but has some minor quirks when plugging in new devices. My users also need to access their local card readers via TS.

    We run Windows2003 Terminal Server and Windows2000 & XP RDP clients.

    The DS330 has it's own internal memory and when plugged into a WinXP PC shows only in the Device Manager as:

    Device Type: "DSXUSB Device"
    Manufacturer: OLYMPUS OPTICAL CO., LTD
    Location 0

    Note that it does not show in the "Safely Remove Hardware" dialog. The Olympus software which is used to download voice recordings from the DS330 uses a tray icon to detect the insertion of the DS330 device into a USB port. Sorry, but it doesn't come up as a hard drive.

    Are there any other (tested?) quality 3rd party products out there to handle such USB devices? Thanks.

    I thaunk that you need to contact the vendor support. Most of third party USB hardware (beside printers and smart card) doesnt support working in terminal.

      Thanks. Vendors are not interested in providing USB support for TS, as they will only support a device if it is connected locally to the user. That's why I'm looking for similar 3rd party TS applications like [email protected] I'm interested to know if there are similar products out there.
