USB not working on OS X host with Windows guest

Reported by: John009 Owned by:
Component: USB Version: VirtualBox 5.0.12
Keywords: USB,Mac,OS X Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


Hello, my host OS is Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.2. I'm trying to attach USB devices on my Windows guest OS and it's not possible. I have installed the extension pack and the guest additions. I unmount the USB device from OS X and click on it under Devices/USB. Windows are trying to install the driver but in the meantime the device is mounted back on OS X. Windows are not able to install the driver. Everything was working fine before El Capitan and before updating VirtualBox. I'm not sure which one is responsible but I have tested with VirtualBox 5.0.12 and 4.3.34, and both are unable to attach the USB device.

Could you confirm that you have no problems with VBox 5.0.10 on the very same system where it fails with VBox 5.0.12? I'm asking because in the description you wrote that you updated both, the OS and VirtualBox.

I confirm that there is no problem with USB in OS Capitan and VB 5.0.10. If I install the update VB 5.0.12, USB stopped working

Thanks. Does the most recent 5.0.13 Mac OS X test build (>= 105008) fix your problem?
