USB device "cannot start" after installation

- Windows 7 Professional
- Windows XP SP3 Professional
USB smart card reader (ACS ACR80) gets recognized in client, but when the driver installation finishes, Windows XP reports the following error:
"The device cannot start. (Code 10)"
I tried rebooting both host and client, then disabling EHCI (USB 2.0) but it made no difference.
In general, USB devices handling in VirtualBox is very tricky and far for perfect. I believe this aspect of the functionality requires far more attention in the future releases.
I like how elegant USB handling is in VMware Player, but I still prefer VirtualBox for many other reasons.
