Windows XP blue screen and particular USB device => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: mieses Owned by:
Component: USB Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Windows


The Windows host crashes with a blue screen depending on the attached USB storage device.

I am running Ubuntu 8.04 32bit guest in VirtualBox 1.6 on a Windows XP SP3 host (32bit).

One USB device consistently causes the Windows host to crash with a blue screen. The second USB device works.

The white text on the blue screen refers to vboxusb.sys.

When the problem USB device is attached while the VirtualBox machine is running, the machine crashes immediately.

When the problem USB device is attached before starting the machine, The Windows XP host crashes during the beginning of the client boot process.

The problem USB device is recognized by Ubuntu 8.04 without issue when Ubuntu is running natively, without VirtualBox.

USB 2.0 is enabled in the Machine settings.

USB device filters were created for the USB devices.

The Windows Add New Hardware Wizard for the VirtualBox USB device appeared twice (once for each USB device when it was attached). The install process was allowed to complete in each case.

The problem device is a USB drive enclosure with In-Systems USB 2.0 chipset and Oxford 911+ FireWire chipset  product link
