On Mac I inserted this USB key into Apple Cinema Display with USB port (my MacBook Pro only has USB-C ports) and it worked with VirtualBox. Now I trying to connect this USB key to the virtual machine with Windows on another host machine, with Linux. On the screenshot - log from dmesg, looks like my Ubuntu 16.04.4 i386 see it, but VirtualBox from repository not. Also I installed virtualbox-ext-pack that required for USB 2.

screenshot dmesg virtualbox usb no device available

You need to have your username in the vboxusers group:

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

Logout login and it should be good.
