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
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

You may need to tweak fstab. Read this page:

On my 11.1 I have

none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=1000,devmode=664 0 0

in fstab

Also look into
(USB questions).


This hasn't been necessary for a number of releases. I have asked the OP
twice for which version he has installed. There is a binary version and
and OSE version on the download page. If he installed the OSE version
USB support is not available. Until he answers the question I cannot
help him further.
