USB not recognized by Windows XP guest

Postby enricotav » 10. Oct 2009, 12:48

Hello,

I'm running VBOX 3.0.4 on Vista Host / XP guest.

As you can see by the attached screenshots the USB devices (I've tried both Ipod and a SanDisk USB pen drive) are recognized by VBOX but not by the XP operative system (they appear in the devices manager as unknown USB devices).

I've installed the guest additions, created the USB filters, attached the USB device when the guest is in focus but nothing seems to works. I read several posts about USB issue, but I don't find anything really applicable to my case, can anyone help?

thanks,
-Enrico
