jmicron usb to ata virtualbox
Hi hopefully someone can help.
I have installed virtualbox on Lucid (the one from suns website)
This sees my freecom usb hard disk dock as a jmicron usb to ata device.
This seems ok.
The problem is when I run virtualbox with this plugged in it is greyed out and says no usb devices attached...
I have added my user to the vboxusers group. I have also tried unplugging and plugging in one the virtualbox is running nothing seems to get the device discovered although ubuntu mounts it straight away. Perhaps this is the issue?
I am happy to provide screenshots and more info if required.
Appreciate any pointers.
Re: jmicron usb to ata virtualbox
Ok I got this working by reading the manual
Solution was to create a usb group and add myself to it.
Once this was done I added:
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=1001,devmode=664 0 0
where 1001 is the id of the group you created.
Once this was done all was well.
Hope this helps someone else.
