    Default Advice how to make USB work in VirtualBox

    Hi all. I've struggled a lot,to make my usb sticks work in VirtualBox, so I thought to share my experience, since it may be useful for someone. I'm on suse 11.1, kde 4.3, VirtualBox 3.08 PE version and was trying to make usb stick available in my Win Xp guest machine. As suggested on many sites, I tried to add new line
    Code:
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,busgid=1000,busmode=0775,devgid=1000,devmode=664 0 0
    in /etc/fstab, but it didn't help. An alternative solution I found somewhere on the web, which worked in case was to: as root user move to folder
    Code:
    cd /etc/udev/rules.d/
    backup original file
    Code:
    cp 10-vboxdrv.rules 10-vboxdrv.rules_backup
    rename file
    Code:
    mv 10-vboxdrv.rules 60-vboxdrv.rules
    and reboot machine. Have a nice day

    It is said to be unnecessary to do all this. I did write this some time ago:
