    initial v1  
    77My MacBook has only 2 USB ports, both are USB 3 ports. 
    88When connecting a USB 2.0 flash drive to a USB 3.0 port, I can access it from within the Windows guest OS (after ejecting it first in Mac OS, so the device isn't occupied by the host OS) and it works fine. 
    9 However, a USB 3.0 flash drive inserted into the same USB port can't be used in the Windows guest OS. The error message comes from Windows after the autorun notification has appeared, stating that it doesn't recognize the device that was inserted. Windows shows a list of connected USB devices to the USB controller and shows 'Unknown' for the flash drive. 
     9However, a USB 3.0 flash drive inserted into the same USB port can't be used in the Windows guest OS. The error message appears as soon as I have inserted the flash drive and states that it doesn't recognize the device. When clicking the message (a balloon originating from the task bar) Windows shows a list of connected devices to the USB controller and shows 'Unknown' for the flash drive.

    1111Is there an easy (preferably UI guided) way to get a USB 3.0 flash drive to work on my Windows guest OS atop of my Mac OS X Mavericks host OS?
