Thank you very much .. I do not have words to thank you..
Congratulations, and - you're welcome
... and - I may have been wrong. If it worked for you on VMWare with Windows, then maybe VMWare is indeed "passing along" all unknown devices to the VM. That seems to have been the case for you, but we'll have to wait for further testimonials.
About your other problem: make sure that all VMs are switched off. Your Kindle is normally recognized as a USB hard disk, and will normally display as some drive letter in Windows. Maybe one of your VMs is also snatching that. But as said before, I don't have Windows....
