VirtualBox won't start with USB Sound card plugged in.

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I've read a few posts (I believe about older versions) where certain USB devices cause problems when connected to the system.

I have a USB Sound Card with a C-Media chipset. When connected, VBoxSvc.exe consumes an entire CPU core (running it @ 100%), and neither the interface nor virtual machines will start.

If I kill the VBoxSvc.exe, I get an error message about not being able to create the COM object (which I believe is as expected).

No log file (VBox.log) is generated/updated when this occurs. My VBox.log for the VM was last modified 5 days ago when I used it last. I added the sound card 2 days ago, and this is the first time I've tried starting a VM with it attached.

If I remove the sound card, everything works fine.

I would like to be able to start VMs without disconnecting my sound card, I will gladly attach any log files requested if a one exists elsewhere (I couldn't find any). Please let me know what I can do to help track down the problem.

I ran a few more tests, and it would seem that as long as VBoxSvc.exe is running before attaching the card, everything works fine.

You might want to test  VirtualBox 4.1 Beta 3. The next major version fixes a number of USB bugs on Windows hosts.

Latest version 4.1.0 -73009 with extension pack installed on a windows 7 host exhibits the exact same behavior as described.

I too would be very interested in this problem being resolved.

It also this problem is live in 4.1.8 r 5467 version. Pelase solve it fast, because we cant use well VB. I too would be very interested in this problem being resolved on W7SP1/64B.

VB release 4.1.8 r75467 has the same problem with C-Media USB sound card. In my case the host is win 7 64 bit and the guest is win 7 32bit.

I downgraded to VB 4.0.4 and the sound card now works as before.
