I've tried various solutions but no luck so far. The one I thought
would work was having the VM have focus when plugging in the card to
see if it tried to capture it but no luck.

I did install the drivers originally. Is there a good way to zap
drivers once installed? I've not see any good software/driver remover
tools yet.
