I'm running Debian on a VirtualBox machine (Windows 7 is the host o.s.). I attached a USB drive and selected into the guest system.

I can see it's recognized in dmesg output:

[  785.492007] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using ehci-pci
[  785.828824] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=05e3, idProduct=0723, bcdDevice=94.54

[  786.866936] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk

but it's not listed in fdisk -l output, nor in lsusb or lspci. But /dev/sdb exists.

What am I missing?

My bet on what is happening is that the drive is mounting into the host OS, in your case Windows 7. These links may help.
