New Vbox Inst - Not able to connect any USB device

Postby virtualsaver » 18. May 2019, 21:09

I have simply replaced my damage HD, reload Dell Recovery image, and installed fresh Vbox+Ext (last version 6.0.8)
Same laptop, same VM installed on external drive.

Now,
I am not able to attach any USB device, on Host I can see VboxUsb device on Device Manager but not available on the Guest.

What does that mean? Can you describe the exact steps and the exact errors?

I can see from the log that you're using a Win7-64 template and the xHCI (USB3) controller:
00:00:02.556650 Guest OS type: 'Windows7_64'
...
00:00:02.606321 [/Devices/usb-xhci/] (level 2)

That won't work! Windows 7 doesn't have support for USB3. Please read the following: USB basics and troubleshooting, #6: Guest support.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

It means not USB available on Virtual Machine even correctly detached from Host.

Not understand why you said "that don't work!" I have always used USB 3.0 on my windows 7 virtual machine, simply installing

as described #6: Guest support

I supposed nothing was showed on log, no comflict or something else.

Fyi I have discovered and fixed the issue following

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=84040

To summarize

first of all, edit your registry

- Open the Windows registry, by clicking on Start > Run and typing regedit
- Navigate to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}
- In the right hand panel, if the the UpperFilters entry exists, then delete it

Install virtualbox USB driver manually.

- Goto folder C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\drivers\USB\filter
- Click right mouse button on file named VboxUSBMon.inf
- Check Install(I) (maybe.. My window is korean so it dose not exact. )

The time to mention installing third party drivers was in your first post.
