    Hello,

    I am trying to use devices through the USB ports of my guest OS (Windows 7) running in Oracle VM VirtualBox (Host is Ubuntu 10.10). I have followed the steps I have done in the past, installed guest additions, selected usb device from the VM toolbar. The devices however will not load, I hear the sound that windows makes recognizing that they have been plugged in but I cannot use them. They also show up in Device Manager, but with an error which reads "This device cannot start. (Code 10). I have tried uninstalling them in device manager and reloading them but I also get an error "Device driver software was not successfully installed".

    Anybody had this problem or know what I may be able to do to correct it?

    Thanks,
    Chris
