Whats the best virtual machine software? i'm using virtualbox currently. would VMware make a better choice?

I currently use virtualbox too. If you can accomplish all your goals with virtualbox, then no need to move to vmware. Most businesses use vmware because it's been around for quite a while and you can get paid support.

Not sure about the dongle as I don't have any programs that use it. For networking, go to the network settings.

Under adpater 1:
a) make sure it's enabled.
b) attached to: bridged adapter
c) for name, select your real network adapter
d) adapter type: PCINet Fast III
e) promiscuous mode: deny

I'm using version 4.1.4r (yes, I need to upgrade it).

I just downloaded the virtualbox extension pack. they say it adds support for usb 2.0...lets see if that helps. i'll inform you asap.
