Add ability to automount USB devices

When I plug in a USB device, VirtualBox recognizes the device, but it doesn't automount it. As part of creating a filter, please add the option to automount the device.

That's actually the default action taken. If you are using Windows as a host, then try VBox 1.4.0. It works now.

Automounting does not work when you use a Linux host.

VirtualBox recognizes the inserted usb device, it's possible to mount it using the menu item 'Devices'->'Usb devices'->'the usb name' but there is no automounting of a media when inserted.

Please reopen if this is still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
