[WorksForMe] No sound in any of my guests

Hello!

Since I began to use VB on my Mac, I've never hear any sound, neither system sound or music. I've installed Win XP, Win 7, and now I've two machines: Win 10 and Ubuntu.

I've look for help on the internet and I've installed the drivers for AC97 soundcard, I think I've made all the possible to hear any sound from my guest machines.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you!

Siracuse

The default sound card for a particular VM is chosen so that you don't have to install any drivers at all, you don't have to deal with it. So, rule #1: stick with the defaults.

Rule #2: make sure the sound card is detected in your guest. Since you mentioned several guests, I can't give you specific instructions.

Rule #3: simplify your host's audio setup to the bare minimum. To that effect, we need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

I have a very similar problem. Here is the vbox.log This is from my newest iMac (2017) High Sierra 10.13.6 with Virtualbox 6.0.6 and a Centos 7 guest which is up to date.

Get rid of that Steinberg device. Try again...

My problems seem to have cleared up with the last update. I'm not sure but I think it was something in the guest additions

Glad you got it going. Given that there are no changes, I'll mark this as a [WorksForMe].
