I am running VirtualBox 6.1 on Ubuntu 20.04. I have two virtual machines set up: Win 95 and Win 10. My windows 10 virtual machine is able to read the USBs I have connected to my host. However, Win 95 does not seem to see/read them. When I go to My Computer the USB drives are not there.

In my Win 95 Virtual Box USB settings I have USB Controller enabled and my USB device is listed as available in the filters. NOTE: My USB is 1GB in size. Could that be an issue with Win 95? (Win 95 can't handle a size that big?) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Note that supported devices were often keyboards, mice and printers in those days. It was not uncommon that you needed an extra driver for your device. Don't expect too much.

  • USB drives in particular need their own drivers, which often require Windows 98. On Windows 95, a network share would be easier to set up. Jan 23 at 9:45
