USB doesn't work on guest Suse Enterprise Linux

Postby Lutz » 18. Oct 2012, 12:37

On my Laptop with AMD Processor, Windows 7, I installed the Virtual Box, as a Guest System Suse Linux Enterprise 11.2. I installed the Extension Pack, and added the filters. The version of the Virtual Box is: 4.2.0 r80737.
On the Guest, after I click on the menu "Devices->USB-Devices" and select the one plugged in, I always get the message:
Failed to attach the USB device HP v165w [0100] to the virtual machine Suse Linux Enterprise 11.2.

USB device 'HP v165w' with UUID {3d78c172-2e7b-4a04-b27f-c4a5ed15d481} is busy with a previous request. Please try again later.

Result Code: E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)
Component: HostUSBDevice
Interface: IHostUSBDevice {173b4b44-d268-4334-a00d-b6521c9a740a}
Callee: IConsole {db7ab4ca-2a3f-4183-9243-c1208da92392}

I have tried the instructions from the a web-side: ""
without any success.
I also have read that the VM-Box may have problems with USB-3.0 ports? Since my Laptop is new, it doesn't have any USB 2.0 ports.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It looks like you won't have luck with your USB 3.0 ports. It seems that access to USB 3.0 ports in Windows is different enough so that the current Virtualbox version doesn't support it.
