USB generic device not working/recognized

Postby mpguy » 2. Nov 2017, 18:59

i have a win 10 install on top of Vbox 5.2 with extensions and guest additions as best i can tell. i can't see a reader device on the USB controller at all under windows install. any suggestions would be deeply appreciated. seems like all the info vboxusbmon are dated and not sure if they apply any longer. could not find any file with vboxusb in c drive of install.
