Unable to include USB HID devices

Reported by: fel1x Owned by:
Priority: major Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2 Keywords: usb hid u3 smartcard
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


I want to use a USB device which is a combination of a mass storage device and a smartcard reader. Similiary I want to use a USB device which is Mouse/Keyboard/Headset. All have in common that they are USB HID (Human Input) devices (Class = 0x03).

I am in a Windows XP Guest from a Mac OS X Host: The HID are greyed out when I click the USB icon under the running guest. Creating a device filter or a generic device filter does not help. Starting VirtualBox as root (to resolve possible permission issues (like under Linux)) does not resolve the problem either.

The device state is unavaible.

# sudo VBoxManage list usbhost |tail -n10

Adding support for USB HID would be a major feature because neither Parallels or VMWare support it very well. Furthermore many USB devices are marked wrongly as a USB HID, as are USB U3 sticks and there are many legit use cases of USB HID devices (Wacom Tablets, Headset, etc).

Please fix this, thanks :)
