http://forums.opensuse.org – Host is x64 openSUSE 11.2 guest is winxp pro VirtualBox ver 3.0.12 The install and setup of VirtualBox is good and working. I'm having a perplexing issue with usb devices. I have three usb devices connected to my system - apc battery, sd carder, and a Logitech joystick. All devices work on the host. I can connect the apc and the card reader to the guest and they work perfectly. But not the Logitech joystick. I get this error, same as I've seen in some other threads: Failed to attach the USB device Logitech Force 3D Pro [0600] to the virtual machine winxp1. Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_READ_ERROR) under "details" is this: Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Console Interface: IConsole {0a51994b-cbc6-4686-94eb-d4e4023280e2} When I installed I modified my fstb: Code: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part1 /                    ext4      noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 1 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part2 /home                ext4      noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 2 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part5 /stuff              ext4      noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 2 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-MAXTOR_STM3500320AS_9QM3ZKZC-part1 /suseimages          ext4      noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 2 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-MAXTOR_STM3500320AS_9QM3ZKZC-part2 /vmdrv              ext4      noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 2 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part3 swap                swap      defaults              0 0 proc                /proc                proc      defaults              0 0 sysfs                /sys                sysfs      noauto                0 0 debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug    debugfs    noauto                0 0 usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0 devpts              /dev/pts            devpts    mode=0620,gid=5      0 0 /sys/bus/usb/drivers /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      devmode=664,devgid=1000 0 0 I have this in /etc/udev/ruls.d/10-vboxdrv.rules Code: KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vboxdrv", OWNER="root", GROUP="root", MODE="0600" SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", GROUP="vboxusers", MODE="0664" SUBSYSTEM=="usb",  NAME="vbusb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", GROUP="vboxusers", MODE="0664" If usb in VirtualBox is generally working, are some usb items going to be hit or miss or are all devices "supposed" to work.
