As long as you select printer redirection when you configure Remote Desktop you can... Go to the
"Local Resources -> Local devices" section when you open the "Options" tab on the RD connectoid...

As far as scanners are concerned, look at this reply by Jeffrey Randow (MS-MVP), for some general
guidance...

AFAIK, no other USB devices are supported other than printers... :(
