I forgot to mention the Host is Windows 10 Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.63) Anti Virus is Avast

Please attach a VBox.log of the affected VM. Is this a USB 3.0 stick and on what kind of port is attached on the host (2.0 or 3.0)?

Change the USB controller setting to USB 3.0 (xHCI) in your VM's settings.

  • Resolution set to worksforme

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent version of VirtualBox. As the last commenter wrote, for USB3 sticks attached to a USB3 port you need to have the xHCI controller enable in the VM config. As an alternative you can attach the stick to a USB2 port or use an USB2 extension cable to downgrade the USB3 stick to USB2.
