WinXP hardware on Win7(64bit)

WinXP hardware on Win7(64bit)

If I run Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on a 64 bit Win7 Enterprise m/c, will Win XP USB hardware be
recognised ? I have USB hardware that runs well on a winXP m/c. I can run the software on the Win7 m/c in
compatibility mode (WinXP service pack 3) but Device Manager shows a problem when I attach the USB hardware,
presumably because of driver incompatibility, in spite of running Setup and getting a "driver okay" message. Hoping this is the correct forum.

I don't know that it will in every scenario, but I have heard of that working in the past.
