Dear All,

Recently I have installed Win 7 Enterprise Edition in Sun's
VirtualBox, but cannot get USB to work. In Settings/USB devices it
correctly states that it is a Kingston Data Traveller, but this line
is greyed out. Down at the status bar after pulling the cursor over
the USB stick icon a popup says that there is no USB devices plugged.

Are there further settings needed or what did I miss?


Which version of VirtualBox do you have installed? The OSE version does
not support USB devices.

It is the Sun-Oracle kind Virtualbox.

Which *version*? There are two different versions on the download page.

It is the latest 3.2.6 version r63112

There are two versions: OSE which is the open source edition in which the USB
devices are not expected to work and the PUEL version in which the USB should
work. I toyed with the PUEL version and windows7 guest and USB a few weeks
ago but could not get them to work. However, USB worked perfectly in other
guests such as windows xp.

Hope that helps.
