P2 cards, Dual adapter with win XP on parallels on a mac?

Here is a long shot. I have an early 2009 MBP. I don't have my camera with me because I am on location until the weekend. I have OSX Lion. I also have an HVX200.

Has anyone tried to use the Duel adapter via parallels and a Win OS?

I can't use the duel anymore without restarting my back to an HD with Leopard to import P2 data.

Can I hook the Duel and P2 card up to win xp inside parallels and copy my contents to an external drive and then ingest them into FCP?

Long shot or reality?

Thanks in advance.

I may try to hook this configuration up later next week when I have my camera.

MBP 2.4GHz 4MB RAM, 30"cine, MAC PRO 2.6 8 core 6GB RAM, Mbox, Neumann TLM-103, FCP HD 7. Pro Tools 8, Adobe Creative Suite, Reason 3.0, Macromedia Studio, ProAnimator, HVX200 with Firestore v4.0

Sounds like a long shot but might work. You can load drivers into WinXP running under Parallels and you can give the VM direct access to USB devices (somewhere in Parallels preferences). Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to test it or find someone else who has.

Personally I'd just get the PCD2 (unless you need to ingest two cards at once) which does work flawlessly under newer OSX versions.
