Did you install from the repositories or from virtualbox.org? Did you install the extension pack? Did you add yourself to the user group vboxusers?

See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox/USB

Well you'll have to do that.

It would be worthwhile to install the extension pack just in case.

You can follow the instructions on the web page Ms Daisy referred to and add yourself to vboxusers via the command line.

You add yourself to the user group in the guest, which would be in Windows 7.
