VirtualBox defaults to using the CDROM/DVD drive which is pretty worthless unless you have a supply of blanks, I don't have many on hand presently. I have been trying to make the USB function work without much success.
Googling suggests group/user problems, I have myself and root listed as vboxusers. The GUI has a USB menu which is always grayed, where I can create a filter, it recognizes the Sandisk flash drive when entered, I click on OK and nothing is saved apparently.
Now I've run across something in google that suggests an entry in fstab may be required? Has any one worked through this maze who can suggest how to make it work?
