Win7 64bit Freezes when syncing iPod over usb[VB 4.2.4]

Reported by: jeisom Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.2.4

Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


I just installed a Windows 7 guest on a Gentoo Linux system with kernel 3.6.9 & 3.7 on a Amd FX-8120 cpu. When I sync the iPod eventually I get a hard lockup of the vm. When this happens the controls will respond till I try to use one like reset, then the controls don't respond. I found that doing a restore of the iPod touch where it reboot 3 or 4 times will trigger it faster. I set a usb filter for all Apple devices so I wouldn't have to reconnect it to the vm every reboot of the device. Disabling the filter will allow getting further without a lockup. I tried disabling 2d and 3d accel to see it was a graphics issue but that doesn't seem to be the case. But it appears to be the usb subsystem that is causing the problem.

I am still getting this with 4.2.6. Also with an iPad as well. I am willing to help in any way possible.

After some trial and error I found that limiting the VM to 1 core works as a workaround. I have an 8-core FX series processor. With 4 cores, hard crash of the VM.

Just got around to testing with 2 processors. Same result.

I have only tested once with 4.2.8 & it still does it. However it took much longer to occur.
