Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

I have a specific USB device that can't be passed to my guest, if I run VirtualBox 4.1.0 on a Linux host. If I run VirtualBox 4.1.0 on a Windows host - no problems.

Here is what happens, when I plug the specific device in: dmesg | tail -n5

[   27.014827] vmnet1: no IPv6 routers present
[   44.009142] warning: `VirtualBox' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)
[  154.552933] usb 1-1.5: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

And lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0000:0000  <---- here we have the device
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020  
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Maybe the problems is because of the strange id of the USB device.

VirtualBox only finds my USB mouse and my USB keyboard: sudo vboxmanage list usbhost

Other USB devices are working, they show up and I can work with them in the VM. I only had to add my user to the group vboxusers. This specific device is only working on a Windows host.
