Ticket #9885 (new defect)
VBox grabs all USB devices when a USB flash drive is attached
|Reported by:||le_jawa||Owned by:|
When I plug in a USB device, or if I start VBox after adding it and select the device from the Devices menu, VBox grabs all USB devices, including my keyboard and mouse set. Fortunately, I'm using VBox on a laptop, so I can still use its built-in keyboard and mouse in the host system. With that mouse I can uncheck my keyboard and mouse set from the devices menu and get back to normal.
Also, while VBox has control of my USB keyboard and mouse, I do not see a mouse pointer, but I can see various items highlighting as I mouse over them.
Attached are screen shots of the devices menu with all devices checked, then my keyboard and mouse set unchecked, as well as all VBox logs from the last two days.
This may be the same problem reported in Ticket 4595, but I'm not sure.
