linked post is quite detailed - just follow the procedure. remember to tweak /etc/udev/vbox-automount-usb.sh according to your username and virtual session name, sample:

Code: Select all

su - fanthom -c "VBoxManage controlvm Windows-XP usbattach $address"
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
