USB in Sun Virtual Box and VM Lite Workstation 11 Years ago Karma: 0
I managed to install Sun Virtual Box and VM Lite Workstation according to, this thread: www.vmlite.com/index.php/forums/13-annou...in-for-virtualbox-re
In Hardware Profile there are (4 of my) usb-ports, but I can't install a printer nor a scanner, because in the install menu, there are only parallel and serial ports. Plug and play doesn't work either. Is there a solution for this. I installed VMLite XP Mode to keep my scanner, because there is no driver for it in Windows 7.
Many thanks for your help.

Did you see your device under vm console menu Devices > USB Devices?
Did you add a USB filter for your usb device?

It's quite tricky to make USB device to work with VirtualBox, especially the first time. You may have to reboot your host computer.

As a sanity check, you can check if USB flash device works.

Yes, admin, I see my printer as well as the scanner. Both are captured, but won't work. You were talking about a USB filter, how can I add it.

I just want to add two other screenshots:
[img]http://rene.van.lerven.free.fr/klembord05[/img]which sais that the scanner is available
[img]http://rene.van.lerven.free.fr/klembord04[/img]which sais that the printer is busy
I'm sorry I tried to embed the images, but it didn't work.

Neither the scanner nor the printer respond to any software. Plug and play installing doesn't work either.
I must say that I had the printer working in a earlier installation. But after installing the scanner software everything blocked, I hadn't any acces to XP anymore and I decided to reinstall SVB, VMLW en XP, withe these results.
Is there anyone who could give me the solution?
Thanks
