VEC USB footpedal (HID) will not connect (greyed out)

Reported by: ckirkpatrick Owned by:
Priority: trivial Component: USB
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4 Keywords: VEC HID USB greyed
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


Foot pedals that appear as "VEC USB foot pedals" or HID devices cannot be connected to Guest OS. The USB hardware appears greyed out. Configuring a filter for the device (on any usb port) does not affect any change in the condition.

If a USB device is grayed out this usually means that the device is either not available (i.e. the host has grabbed the device) or the device is not accessible (permission problem). For Mac OS X hosts I would assume the first cause. Do you have any driver for this device installed on the host?

There is never a need to install a driver when connecting these pedals. It is recognized automatically (both Win and Mac). Following is from the OsX system profiler:

Frank, If you want me to attempt anything please let let me know. I can easily drop-ship you a pedal if you would by chance be working on the issue. Let me know if there is anything I can do help facilitate a resolution. Thanks again. -Chris
