Is there any way to get around not having 64-bit drivers for a USB device?

Is there any way to get around not having 64-bit drivers for a USB device?

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and I have a USB mixer that doesn't yet have 64-bit drivers. Is there some way to make it work? Would running a 32 bit virtual machine work?

"Yes, use any of the virtual machine programs that support USB pass through, and you should be able to use it within the virtual machine using the 32 bit driver.

Personally, I have had the best results with VMWare Workstation, but I know both Microsoft Virtual PC / XP Mode and Sun VirtualBox also support USB pass through.

I do this to use an old scanner within a 32 bit Windows 2000 virtual machine."
