USB camera

Postby mlcordero » 29. Mar 2011, 13:30

I am new in VirtualBox, just installed the latest version in my Macbook Pro (Leopard) host, Windows XP guest. I am trying to run an IDS Ueye USB camera. I have installed the guest additions, tried filtering, etc, but cannot obtain any images.

The USB port seems to work OK, I have tested with an USB stick and succeeded. The camera is recognised by the guest, even the led turns green and the ueye's software utility loads the camera, but the image is black. The software reports an error in the transfer.

I have read about similar problems in this forum, but cannot find a real solution. Is it simply that VB does not support this kind of USB devices?
