    Hmm. I'm not familiar with Vista Home Basic on Parallels, but it could be because you didn't install a driver for the transfer cable. Try doing this:

    Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties. Now click on the 'Hardware' tab. You should see the following screen:

    [​IMG]

    Now select 'Device Manager', scroll down to 'Other devices' and click on the + symbol beside it:

    [​IMG]

    Right click on 'Memory Unit' and select 'Update Driver[​IMG]...'. If asked whether you want to connect to Windows Update select 'No, not this time' and then click 'Next'. On the next screen select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)':

    [​IMG]

    On the next screen select 'Don't search I will choose the driver to install.' This should launch the hardware update wizard. Scroll down to 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' which appears near the bottom of the list:

    [​IMG]

    On the next screen check that 'USB Mass Storage Device[​IMG]' is highlighted and select 'Next'. If a 'Update Driver Warning' appears select 'Yes':

    [​IMG]

    Windows will now install the driver. Once this is complete the new hardware wizard will appear again. Click cancel when it does. If you now scroll back up to 'Other devices' you will notice that 'Memory Unit' has been removed and 'MSFT Memory Unit USB Device' has appeared in it's place:

    [​IMG]

    Now similar to before right click on 'MSFT Memory Unit USB Device'. If asked whether you want to use Windows Update again select 'No, not this time' then on the next screen select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Then after clicking 'Next' select 'Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.' You should now be back at the 'Hardware Update Wizard'. Near the top of the list should be the hardware type 'Disk drives', select this option and click 'Next':

    [​IMG]

    Check '(Standard Disk Drives)' is highlighted under manufacturer and 'Disc Drive' under model and then click 'Next'. If you get the 'Update Driver Warning' select 'yes':

    [​IMG]

    You can then click finish and close 'Device Manager'. Your memory card reader is now installed.

    I don't know what drivers to use. I didn't have to update my drivers I was just saying that because it helps when you are getting an error. You could also try using Xport360 or running the program as admin because you are on Vista.

    I found this on another site. I don't know if this applies to you, but try this.

    Try going to the Exentsions folder, remove any which have "Lexar" in the name, reboot and see if that fixes it. Don't run the Lexar "Secure" software, either, or it will reinstall the extension, and you'll have to do it all over again.

    Well, I'm not sure if you are going to be able to mod because of your set up. If you get on Windows then I can help. I'm not familiar with how you are working on your computer.

    As far as I know you can only use the usb transfer cable with windows systems unless someone develops a resigner/program to transfer data on your hard drive
