Can't acces USB device over SPICE from VM

Latest response

I have VM access enabled via the RHEV-Manager, but when I plug in an external hard drive into the local client machine, it does not appear on the VM. IS there something I've not done?

seems to reffer to an old version or something, at least I can't locate RHEV-USB_Client.exe on the RHN.

Ok, I have since found and installed the RHEV-USB client exe (slightly differently from how it's described in the link as you no longer need to download it). However once the tools were installed in the vm, plugging in the external drive still did not cause the volume to appear. :-/

All this on W7 by the way. Eventually decided to just download the file to save time.
