Today I tried to fix a problem that I had on my VirtualBox VM, I couldn’t use the USB controller!!
I use Arch Linux as host and Windows 7 as guest on VirtualBox 5.1.2-1. The USB controlled was enabled on USB 3.0 (xHCI) Controller, but if I tried to mount the USB it was recognized only by my host.
So here how I solved the problem:
- Add user to vboxusers group: as indicated by the guide you have to add the user that launch the VirtualBox machine to the vboxusers group:
- Enable USB 2.0 Controller: I tried to use the 3.0 support but it doesn’t work for me, while I didn’t trouble with the the 2.0. So to enable it just go to Settings -> USB and mark the USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller
- Use the USB Controller/li>: to use the USB Controller just follow the steps below.
All should work fine now! #gwh
If you have questions or if you know why 3.0 Controller doesn’t works leave a comment!!! Thanks to all!
