I have a usb gamepad which was designed for windows XP. I'm using Gutsy and I have an installation of XP in vmware server.
Plugging in the gamepad, it seems that Ubuntu recognizes the device:
(end of dmesg output)
Normally, usb devices appear in the VM>Removable Devices>USB Devices of vmware server (my printer and external hard drive appear there). But there's no entry for the gamepad, so I can't connect it to the VM.

Does anyone know why that happens?
