Ticket #7093 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows (all?) guests cannot access USB devices due to lacking group-write permission on device
|Reported by:||pablo||Owned by:|
I noticed my Guest (Windows 7) was no longer able to access the USB devices on my Host. I'm not sure when this regression occurred because it's not a frequent activity.
I checked the permissions in /dev/bus/usb' for group vboxusers' and found all the devices didn't have write' permission. Once I manually chmod g+w' the devices, the Guest gained access.
I confirmed that 10-vboxdrv.rules' is in /etc/udev/rules.d' ...
Please let me know if other information is required.
I'm heading out on vacation this Friday for a week ... just a heads up. :)
Thx a lot!
