    USB Writing / Premissions Problem in Ubuntu 10.10

    Just recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 in Virtualbox on a Windows host (Vista 64 bit) successfully after an initial hurdle related to RAM.

    I've run into a problem regarding writing data files on USB. It appears that I have permissions problem and I am unable to write any file to a USB mounted, even if I wipe and reformat the USB.

    There has been a thread on this forum already - but the information is outdated and the manage groups option no longer exists. Can I have any help on this?

    (I have already enabled the Virtual Box drivers in System Settings --> Additional Drivers but USB support is still unavailable. I have also tried
    sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers jacob
    but it says that
    usermod: group 'vboxusers' does not exist

    Thanks in advance.

    I am guessing that "VirtualBox Guest Additions" are not installed. Please check whether it is installed.

    Have a nice day!
