VirtualBox and USB Joysticks
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 7, 2009
I have installed VirtualBox 3.0.0 on Ubuntu 9.0.4 Jaunty Jackalope. The guest OS is Windows XP with Guest Additions installed. The group, vboxusers, is set up with my ID added. My USB memory key works fine from the Guest OS.
However, I cannot get any USB joysticks or gamepads to work with Virtualbox. I tried the various solutions involving fstab, udev, and mountdevsubfs. It would seem that if memory sticks work fine then the USB set up for VirtualBox is correct. The problem seems to be unique to devices handled by joydev. I tried blacklisting joydev but the error remains the same. Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem?
I tried a joystick and gamepad and both reported the same type of error...
Failed to attach the USB device Logitech Attack 3  to the virtual machine Windows_XP.
Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_READ_ERROR).
USB Joysticks in Gentoo
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 25, 2003
Okie Dokie, I've finnally gotten my 3d rendering and my ALSA working. I setup to play some Vendetta, and find out my USB joysticks aren't working. I check out my /dev/input and all I found was "mice". That's it. I'm assuming that I am missing joystick support in my kernel. I have gone back through, enabled EVERY joytick I saw listed (I have 3, will probably buy more), then typed the following as root:
make dep clean
make modules modules_install
The joystick drivers were configured as modular. Now the questions are: Will the above work to get my joysticks going? If not what else? Or am I only screwing things up?
(BTW - I already know I'll have to recompile/reinstall ALSA after recompiling the new kernel)
Xperia PC Companion Software / VirtualBox USB Recognition

(Please note im still having trouble updating my phone, due to the boot method during preparing)
This may not seem like a big deal, but ive literally spent days trying to find a working way to update my phone in Linux.
Trying to get my phone recognised, or what was the best way. I was hoping to find a way of installing Sony's PC Companion via Wine, but it has issues with running and Drivers dont really work with wine.
Anyway, So i have gotten USB to work with Virtual Box, following the simplest guide, after a few basic steps it finally worked.
Its simple but there arent really any answers on forums and the web telling of the working method so hopefully this will easily guide the half a dozen or more people to setting this up on their machine.
1) Install Virtual Box - https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
2) Setup a Virtual machine, plenty of guides on this, but you create a new environment based on the OS you wish to use, i advise windows XP, as i

VirtualBox USB config test script; testers wanted
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 17, 2009
Being as we've had so many questions here about getting USB to work with VirtualBox I've knocked up this script to check the configuration. It tests OK on my system. Any volunteers to test it? It can be run without any special privileges.
EDIT: only the PUEL versions of VirtualBox have USB support; the OSE versions do not; the script attempts to identify the version in use and reports an error if the OSE version is found.
EDIT2: latest version of the script is in this post.

Virtualbox USB support and vboxusers user account access
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 23, 2011
I've recently updated my notebook to Oneiric 11.10 from 11.04 and am quite happy with the overall improvements. However I cannot get Virtualbox to recognize USB now. Previously, other Ubuntu versions requires access to vboxusers in "user accounts" and placing a tick in the access box. However 11.10 doesn't seem to allow this. I open "user accounts" and unlock as administrator. However I cannot access any of these accounts - nothing opens up. How do I do this on Oneiric 11.10 so that I can add USB support to Virtualbox? Is there some special keystroke combination for opening the various options?
Although this issue affects USB usability on Virtualbox it seems like a 11.10 bug as its "user access" function doesn't seem to function. Thanks for any suggestions in advance.
[SOLVED] Virtualbox USB help
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 19, 2008
I am trying to connect a usb hard drive to virtual box in windows. The problem is that windows auto mounts it and then won't give control to virtualbox. Is there a way around this?
EDIT: since the hard drive is left over from a previous install (ext3) windows won't recognize it with a drive letter, so i can't unmount it from explorer.
Also, sorry about posting about windows, i am trying to do this to install Linux and avoid a lot of hassle later. Thank you.
