    USB device (webcam) in XP under KVM

    Is it possible to get XP installed with KVM-QEMU to see connected USB devices? There is an option -usbdevice which seems like it will do something of the sort.
    I'm specifically trying to get my webcam detected. It works in Ubuntu (Camorama).
    My lsusb looks like this:
    Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:08f0 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Messenger
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 026: ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    When I give the option -usbdevice 003:046d:08f0 with kvm, I get the error:
    Warning: could not add USB device 003:046d:08f0

    Any pointers?
