Failed to attach USB device

Postby feelit » 19. Oct 2012, 18:44

Hi,

In VirtualBox 4.2.2 I have a WinXP install under Win7
When I tried to connect an external USB HDD (Lacie) I get the error

Failed to attach the USB device LaCie Desktop Hard Drive [0001] to the virtual machine WinXPSP3.

USB device 'LaCie LaCie Desktop Hard Drive' with UUID {407a8636-ba74-4418-a4a1-164f5f6541d8} 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}


Is it wrong parameter use from myself or a bug in VirtualBox? Note, it works under WinXP.

I presume it's a miss use from myself as with another external USB HDD, I have a similar error
Failed to attach the USB device Philips Harddisk to the virtual machine WinXPSP3.

Thanks
