Any suggestions?

    On the plus side though, copy + paste to and from the VM now works (it didn't before)

    I got usb to work also.

    step 1: Edit Virtual machine settings

    step 2: Select Hardware tab

    step 3: See below .. click on Add

    step 4: select USB controller

    step 5: VM/Removal Devices/USB Devices and then I click on the name of the flash drive.

    Enjoy
    did you need to turn off your vm to accomplish this? did you have to remove your existing USB controller first before adding the new one, as i tried adding a new USB controller when the vm was turned off but it was grayed out until i removed the existing controller in the hardware list.

    Well, I was thinking the device was a printer or scanner, but it is a drive.

    Sorry about that.

    Hey sorry to bump, but anyone have any ideas as to my problem? I'm trying to get this solved as soon as I can since this is the only way I can update my phone to fix a DST error!

    Re: USB drive detection

    You did put this line in your /etc/fstab file:

    Code:
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs   auto      0       0
    Seems like this has worked for just about everyone.

    Re: USB drive detection

    Yep. Though, I'm starting to doubt it's my computer. NOTHING to connect this freaking Q to Linux is working. Not SynCE, not WDDrive or whatever it is, it won't connect in VM, a random Bluetooth adapter I bought could neither detect or be detected by it, nothing. It connects perfectly fine to Windows PCs though.

    My VM problem though doesn't seem to be a matter of detection: it connects (and the Windows XP inside the VM plays the device connected sound) but it then immediately disconnects. This seems like Ubuntu is constantly trying to take back control of the device. Is there any way to prevent that?

    Re: USB drive detection

    Well, I plug my drive into main box, Ubuntu see it, I unmount it; then, go to VM/Removal Devices, click on USB Devices and check the drive. It comes right up and is seen in Win Explorer as another drive.

    When I'm ready to leave it, in VM I unclick it. I suppose it shows in WinXP and I should release it there, so the OS thinks it is safe to remove a writeable device.

    Let us know when you have your issues fixed.

    Re: USB drive detection

    That might be my problem: Ubuntu doesn't see it at all; it isn't in Computer, and I can't think if where else it might be. Anyone know why it isn't being detected by Ubuntu?

    Re: USB drive detection

    If it is a normal USB drive Ubuntu should have no trouble reconginizing it.

    You BIOS shows that the USB functions are there?

    Have you ever had this drive work in this situation?
