USB-Disk not showing up in Windows 7 Guest on Ubuntu 10.10 64bit

After the upgrade from 4.0.4 to 4.0.6 via Ubuntu's aptitude I can't access USB-Disks anymore, I tried it with two disks (3,5" and 2,5").
The mouse and keyboard wich are also connceted via USB work without problems, so do my USB-Stick and my iPhone. Only the USB-HDDs want show up in the Windows Guest.
When I connect the USB-Disks to the System everything looks okay, drivers got installed and Windows 7 tolds that the device is proper installed and ready for use. But when I open the Windows-Explorer there are no disk at all. The USB-Disk even shows up in the Device-Manager.
When I try to have a look in the Diskmanager-MMC the MMC opens but doesen't show the disks and the USB-Activity Icon in Virtualbox is not flashing but stays on the whole time.
The Diskmanerger-MMC stays grey until I disconnect the disk from the Guest via the USB-Icon or unplug the disk, then I see for a second the now disconnected USB-Disk and the System Disk. Then the USB-disk is gone and there is only the system disk to see.
There are no errors in the log file, as far as I can tell.
The right Extension Pack and Guest Additions are also installed.
A did an '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' and rebooted the hostsystem, but that didn't help either.
Log and screenshot are attached.
