How To Use USB in Sun VirtualBox



It’s because when you connect usb to the usb port it’s connected to your home operating system (the one in which virtual box is installed and running). To connect usb to VirtualBox , when your guest Operating System is running in VirtualBox , go to VirtualBox’s “menu bar->Devices->Usb Devices” and there your Usb’s name will be appeared (e.g.; Sony Storage Media) click it and your Usb device will be connected to guest operating system in the mean time you won’t be able to use Usb on your host operating system. To connect usb to your home operating system again, uncheck usb’s name from Devices menu of Virtual Box and you can use the USB in your host operating system.
