Vbox status code -38

Postby avanrens » 7. Aug 2007, 12:25

I have had Virtual box running but it has just stopped on me with a dialog box with the following;

Cannot open host device '/dev/hdg' for readonly access. Check the permissions of that device ('/bin/ls -l /dev/hdg'): Most probably you need to be member of the device group. Make sure that you logout/login after changing the group settings of the current user.
VBox status code: -38 (VERR_ACCESS_DENIE
I am still very new to Ubuntu so I'll need a step by explanation to how to fix the problem.
This is the second time I've had this problem the last time I reinstalled Windows in the VirtualBox and it worked for about 3 weeks and then I got the same message.
