BSOD when connecting USB devices

Reported by: axellaf Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.16 Keywords: usb bsod
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


Hello, I am using a virtualbox 4.2.16 ( I have had this issue for quite some time and also experienced it with 4.1 and prior versions, was hoping 4.2 would resolve the issue for me but no luck). Windows 7 host (64 bit), backtrack 5 guest (although also experienced this with other guests including bt3 and xp). Whenever I try to connect any type of usb device like a usb wifi dongle or usb external hard drive to by virtualbox guest I get a blue screen of death from windows that points to VBoxUSBMon.sys - as the culprit. Tried replacing the file, uninstalling and reinstalling virtualbox, installing different versions of host, reinstalling usb drivers (and installing different versions as well), and a few other things that escape me at the moment. Virtualbox is awesome software, but of limited use if I can't use usb with it. Any ideas? Thanks

Ok, for the record, the reason for this crash was that you enabled the driver verifier. There might be still a problem but closing this ticket as it worked for you.
