USB is busy with a previous request [E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)]

Reported by: Jacky Owned by:
Priority: major Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.8 Keywords: USB E_INVALIDARG busy
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


Hi, I still have problems with connecting my USB device on this Win7-64bit host to a WinXP SP3 guest in 4.1.8 with usb_extension 4.1.8 and guest additions 4.1.8.

Connecting some usb flash drives succeeds but connecting my USB-to-CAN - device from peak-systems ( more info) is not working. In earlier versions I got a message when starting the guest like "Virtualbox USB is installing..." and after the next complete restart of my computer the device was working. But now I don't get the windows tray message "Virtualbox USB is installing..." and if I want to connect my usb device while vm is running I get the error

Das USB-Gerät VER1:PEAK    
DAT :06.05.2004
                             ... [1C11] konnte nicht an die virtuelle Maschine Windows XP gebunden werden.

USB device 'VER1:PEAK    


DAT :06.05.2004


                             ...' with UUID {2fb58d0c-81b4-4505-9984-a67bfc272a87} is busy with a previous request. Please try again later.

Fehlercode:E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)
Interface:IHostUSBDevice {173b4b44-d268-4334-a00d-b6521c9a740a}
Callee:IConsole {1968b7d3-e3bf-4ceb-99e0-cb7c913317bb}

USB-filters are set correctly, as already mentioned other usb mass storages are working. On my host this peak usb device is running with latest drivers and all seems to work.

I've been searching already for some hours in google and had a look at #3033 and #5343 and  Forums but nothing solved it until now.

Is there a way to find a solution? I don't want to reinstall earlier versions... Is there a problem to disconnect the device from host because it's busy?

Thanks for your help

I am having the same problem, i.e. device busy. I am running VirtualBox 4.1.10 on Mac OS 10.7.3 with Windows XP SP1 as guest. I do not have any UpperFilters entry in the guest Registry. From the beginning (2.5 years ago) tested USB devices worked perfectly. Today only my mouse is recognized. Most important the printer cannot be recognized in any way I have tested. It stopped totally working with the upgrade to 4.1.10. An earlier degradation was that the native driver (HP 2025 PS) could not be used, but a generic HP ColorLaserJet PS driver could be used. If accessed from the Mac host OS, I cannot log on to the printer with any Mac user account. Is there anyway to log exactly what is going on?

Virtual Box 4.1.12 with the Extension Pack solved my problem! Both for USB Printer and USB Flash memory. Thanks.

Go in filter and edit. You will see some information from this device. How is the serial number?

Perhaps my problem:

I had a similar issue sometime back. What worked for me was to remove all text from the 'Product' field in the usb filter.

Hi everyone, I have had the same problem and I tried with two different USB 3.0 devices. The thing is, I think that was the problem, because when I changed to USB 2.0 it worked immediately (although you need to have the USB 2.0 support enabled before booting your VM).

So if nothing else works for your USB 3.0, try a USB 2.0 device instead! :)

PS. All my USB ports in my laptop are USB 3.0...
