I am also experiencing the same problem: Ubuntu 8.04, VirtualBox 1.6.0. Would be nice to be able to sync my iPod touch using VirtualBox, as I no longer have any Windows computer at home.

  • Priority changed from critical to major

Did you enable the USB 2 controller in VBox? If not, turn it on and try again.

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by messageman3

I can confirm that bug exists for me too. Also, I noticed that some time ago VMware team managed to fix similiar bug in their VM:

 http://communities.vmware.com/thread/91715?tstart=0&start=135 (last 3 post on the page).

So it's doable :).

FYI: I re-tested against last released version (1.6.2) and the bug still exists. Thank you for your attention.

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 1.5.6 to VirtualBox 1.6.2
  • Summary changed from iPod Touch still does not work. no crashing now, but not recognised by itunes unless in recovery mode to iPod Touch recognised by iTunes unless in recovery mode

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by omry

having similar issues with 1.6.2 on Debian lenny and a Windows XP guest. USB generally work, but not for iPod touch. I saw Windows detect it once or twice, but it never got recognized by iTunes.

Replying to frank: I think you mean "iPod Touch not recognised by iTunes unless in recovery mode."

This is probably the same issue as #1838

comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by cornbread

Newest Itunes 8.2.1 and latest virtualbox 3.0.2 doesn't allow for syncing/restore with ipod touch in recovery mode

comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by gabriel

I'm using virtualbox 3.0.4 and latest itunes and I get the same error (can't sync my ipod touch in recovery mode).

comment:17 Changed 4 years ago by burntbit

I'm having the same issue. iPod Touch works with iTunes 9.02 to sync and backup unless it's in recovery mode. I tried upgrading to the latest iTouch firmware and can't because I can't get the USB device recognized (since it needs to use recovery mode for upgrades.)

Crunchbang Linux (Juanty debian) VirtualBox 3.1.6 r59338 Windows XP Home SP3 iTunes 9.02 (Since no version after 9.02 works in VirtualBox)

I found a fix. I got it working I followed instruction 2 & 3 from  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=970628&highlight=iphone

2. Configure Ubuntu for VirtualBox-2.0

Add yourself to the vboxusers group

  Code:
    sudo gpasswd -a `whoami` vboxusers

Startup vboxdrv module on boot by appending it to /etc/modules

  Code:
    echo "vboxdrv" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

3. Usb Filesystem fix

Get the vboxusers group id

  Code:
    cat /etc/group | grep vboxusers

Quote:
    vboxusers:x:128:spirit

Edit /etc/fstab to add these two lines and replace the devgid with the vboxusers group id

  Code:
    #usbfs for virtualbox
    none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=128,devmode=664 0 0
