Ticket #9003 (closed defect: duplicate)
Mac OS host cannot pass USB storage devices to guest OSs
|Reported by:||CaptSaltyJack||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
I've found a bug in Mac OS VirtualBox. I was completely unable to pass control of any USB storage devices to any type of guest (Windows, Linux) until on the Mac OS host I temporarily moved /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext to the desktop, rebooted the host, then ran VBox again and attempted to use a USB device in a Linux guest.
Somehow IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext is interfering with passing USB storage devices to guest operating systems.
