USB Memory Stick (SanDisk Cruzer 16GB) not recognized if VirtualBox Manager started

Reported by: micado Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.14 Keywords: USB SanDisk Cruzer
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


Host: Windows 64/7
Guest: no VM started
USB Stick: SanDisk Cruzer 16GB, FAT32

Description a)

  • Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager started (no VM started).
  • trying to connect USB SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB to host computer.

=> The stick is not recognized by Windows 7/64 but the connection sound appears. The volume letter is not present to the host system. The Windows Disk management utility does not show any information for minutes about any drive (tries continously to connect to the virtual disk management service). After a while the utility shows all information but the SanDisk Cruzer stated with "no Medium".

Trying to connect any other USB Memory Stick: no problem

Description b)

  • Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager not started (no VM started).
  • connect SanDisk Cruzer

=> no problem

=> no problem

It seems that the VM VirtualBox Manager disables the ability to proper connect the SanDisk Cruzer only. This happens to other VB releases too.

I am experiencing this with an older 8gb Cruzer. Other memory sticks do not have this problem.
