    Start settings in virtualbox, go to shared folders and browse to the folder you want to share

    here's a quick guide
    1. start up virtual box then start up xp
    2. go to the top panel click Devices-->Install Guest Editions
    3. Download and install Guest Editions
    4. Set up your shared folders in virtual box. Example share folder home/Crimthinc
    5. start up windows go to Start-->Run enter cmd and press enter
    6. once in the dos console deal type net use t: \\vboxsvr\Crimethinc(only put in the last folders name on the end of the command for example if you selected a folder under home/Crimthinc/music the command would be net use t: \\vboxsvr\music)

    This should work this is exactly what i did to get mine working its surprising how frustrated I got figuring this out

    Thanks! I was stuck trying to access the hard disk partitions. Just one thing to add. On clicking Devises->Install Guest Additions I felt nothing was happening. But actually the install script was being mounted as a virtual cdrom.

    Well, didn't work for me
    Any idea? Do I have to do something in Ubuntu to make this work?
