HOWTO : Using USB Devices on VirtualBox 4.1.8

Using USB devices on VirtualBox 4.1.8, which is installed on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, is easy.

sudo usermod -a samiux -G vboxusers

*where samiux is the user name

Then, logout and re-login. Or, reboot your system.

Now, you can use USB devices on VirtualBox without any problem. However, some devices do not work properly on USB 2.0 enabled on VirtualBox.

That's all! See you.
