Enable "USB 3.0 (xHCI)" in the VM settings.

USB level is not a decision made in software. If you plug a USB3 device into a USB3 host port then it uses USB3. Then the question was only: does the guest OS support USB3, and have you captured this host device in the guest.

Any further discussion will require a VM log. Make sure the VM is fully shut down, then right click it in the manager UI. Select "Show Log" and save "VBox.log" (no other file) to a zip file. Attach the zip here.
