[174272.347309] usb 2-1.2: new high speed USB device number 23 using ehci_hcd [174272.425986] usb 2-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0000, idProduct=0000 [174272.425993] usb 2-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [174272.425998] usb 2-1.2: Product: USB [174272.426000] usb 2-1.2: Manufacturer: SMI Corporation [174272.426004] usb 2-1.2: SerialNumber: AA6270950J5000000873

The device is a USB stick. I unmount it on the host (Linux), and would like to use it inside the VM. However, neither before nor after unmounting it, the virtualbox GUI doesn't want to show it in the list of USB devices.

I admit that a zero vendor and product Id is somewhat weired. However, the USB drive works just fine.
