Symptoms

I am not able to use a FireWire device in my Virtual Machine.

Cause

Unsupported device.

Resolution

Parallels Desktop (9-11) supports only storage devices (Thunderbolt and FireWire), i.e. external hard drives - are supported.

Parallels Desktop (9-11) for Mac does not provide support for non-storage FireWire devices, i.e. scanners, printers, external displays, video/sound cards, etc. - are not supported.

Thunderbolt and FireWire devices are not supported by Parallels Desktop 8 and earlier.
