Read the manual on installing and in particular the extension pack section.

Unless it's the same problem that you had two years ago: usb cann't used under guest os.

Are there any plans for an extension pack, or at least a minimal extension to permit USB 2.0 with FreeBSD? It's sort of a much needed functionality....

There is no platform specific ExtPack. Why can't you install the one that's already available?

PS. Moving to "Other Hosts" from "Windows Guests", since this has not a lot to do with your guest.
