Thanks.
I changed my symlink in /sbin/mount.vboxsf to point to /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-3.1.0/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf
Then I could mount my shared folder without any problems!

I had a similar problem with Ubuntu 13.10.

I had to proceed as follows:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo rm /sbin/mount.vboxsf
sudo ln -s /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-4.3.10/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf /sbin/mount.vboxsf

@ngordon7000
You replied to a 4 1/2 year old thread, that was talking about VirtualBox 3.1.0, with a fix for VirtualBox 4.3.10!!!! WHY???????????????
If you obfuscate any logs or other information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

Had the exact same problem today -- vbox 4.3.10 on Windows 7 x86_64 with Debian i686 guest. The link /sbin/mount.vboxsf was invalid (I had to change it from /usr/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf to /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-4.3.10/lib/VBoxGuestAdditions/mount.vboxsf).
