USB devices not automatically picked up by guest on Mac OSX host
|Reported by:||ElectricSquid||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
This is a minor annoyance bug, similar to an issue with VBox 3.1.2 on a MAC OSX host.
Upon startup of the guest machine, some USB devices are not automatically picked up by the guest. Unplugging the USB device and plugging it back in has mixed results. Sometimes it's picked up, sometimes not. Repeated unplugging and re-connecting of the USB device will eventually work.
OS: MAC OSX 10.5.8
Model: MacBook 4.1
Processor: 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
OS: Windows Xp Pro Service Pack 3
USB Devices -
Mouse: Leapmaker 1600 DPI
Controller: Logitech Dual Action Gamepad G-UF13A
Card Reader: Lexar Media USB 2.0 Multi-Card Reader
The mouse has never given me a problem, but the Gamepad and Card Reader have this issue. The Gamepad has it's own USB Filter, which is very specific to it's info (though this doesn't seem to matter, I've tried it with a non-specific filter with the same results). The Card Reader uses the ALL USB Devices filter.
