#1930 new enhancement

The ability to exclude selected USB devices in the setup.

Reported by: Walt L. Williams Owned by:
Component: USB Version: VirtualBox 1.6.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


I have been using VirtualBox for a couple of months now. I have had a couple of occasions where I have attempted to mount a USB flash key by doing a right mouse click selection on the icon in the lower right side of the virtual machine screen, only to accidentally select my USB mouse. This resulted in the inability to use the mouse in either the host system or virtual machine causing me to have to dump out of the GUI with a <alt><ctrl><backspace>. (not good)

Could you please include a feature in the virtual machine setup where I can 'hide' certain devices from the icon right mouse click selection, so as to prevent the accidental selection of devices that are already available to the virtual machine, and to prevent what work out to be something that disables of the system.

If you have any questions on what I am talking about please feel free to email me.
