iPod not showing in Vbox XP
Hope someone can help with this problem.
I have an 80gb iPod Classic which I manage in iTunes on Windows XP in Virtualbox, complete with Guest Additions installed.
Last time I used it was last Sunday (13th) and it worked fine and I added some new music to the iPod.
I've gone to do the same tonight and instead of the iPod appearing in iTunes, it mounts on the host Xubuntu 12.04 and a Thunar window opens showing the iPod contents.
Back on the Virtual XP, USB is enabled including the iPod - see screenshot 1
but no devices appear - see screenshot 2 - whereas previously the iPod showed up as did my USB mouse (which is working fine in V'box)
I recall that the latter Devices menu was how I first added the iPod filter to my virtual XP - see screenshot 3
I've updated Virtualbox to 4.2.6 tonight but no change.
Unmounting it from the host doesn't do anything either.
So, any thoughts on how I get my iPod to show up again?
Over the years I've tried various Linux-only ways to manage my iPod but they've all messed up my iPod so I really like this virtual solution hence I would like to sort it, so no need for "use banshee/rhythmbox/others" suggestions
