Ticket #3416 (new defect)
USB misconfigured in W2K guest

I'm not even sure how to describe this in the right terms, but after installing the guest additions in my 2K VM I get an "add new hardware" dialog upon inserting a USB thumbdrive; after going through that I see a yellow-question-mark "USB Controller" under "other devices" in the Device Manager [devmgmt.msc] the property-sheet of which claims that the drivers aren't installed correctly. Trying to do so and letting it search around in \program files\sun and the guest-additions ISO doesn't turn up anything it's happy with so the device remains misconfigured, which I suspect is behind not letting any USB devices work. . I've searched the archives extensively and can't find anything that comes sufficiently close to this set of conditions to let me solve this on my own. What did I miss during install? I've got filters set up for various USB devices, the host OS sees them just fine without VB running, etc etc, it's just that my 2K guest has a mangled idea of what's there. . Let me know what other information I can collect.
