I'm using VirtualBox Version 5.0.40_Ubuntu r115130 on a linux mint mate (18.2) host. I have also installed Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack Version 5.0.40r115130. I installed a Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit) guest OS. I also added my current user to the vboxusers group.
The problem is that when I select USB3.0 (xchi) in my USB settings, from my guest I go to Devices>USB and select the USB device I want to load it gets unmounted from my host OS but does not mount in my guest OS.
I tried adding a 'USB Device Filter' from my guest settings but nothing. I have searched for solutions online and tried these Cannot see usb devices on Windows guest, How to set up USB for Virtualbox?, VirtualBox/USB amoung others but none seem to solve my problem.
I have also installed other linux-based guest OS and they have no problems seeing USB devices. Also if I select USB 2.0 in my USB settings the devices work perfectly but at USB 2.0 speed.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
