virtual box and extension pack for usb3

Post#1 by francois » 17 May 2018, 14:34

I have installed virtual box on window to receive a linux guest. Guest additons were properly installed and I get a shared folder from the windows partitions.
Virtualbox Shared Folder Help
Usb functionality was missing, so I added the VirtualBox Extension Pack of the same version as the virtual box package set on my windows 10 host.

Usb functionality is not working for the guest, and I loose usb functionality on my machine for the windows host (a usb plugged logitech mouse).

My usb key is formated with linux file system only.

Has anyone done better in terms of usb access from a linux guest on windows host?

Thanks.
