    The Host Windows Vista Ultimate.
    The VM Windows XP SP2

  5. Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. :) Cheers! Sandra. R.

  6. This worked, thanks! Istill having another problem though. Even after I shut down the guest and unplug + replug the device, windows no longer detects it. I tried removing it from the list of usb filters in vbox but that makes no difference. Any suggestions?
