I'm running the latest version: 3.1.2 build 56127.
I had to perform these steps to get USB to work on a Linux or Windows host.
Get your vboxusers group ID
# cat /etc/group | vboxusers
Remount the USBFS with your vboxusers GID from the above step
# mount -t usbfs -o remount,devgid=GID,devmode=664 /proc/bus/usb
Change the permissions on /dev/vboxdrv
# chmod g+rw /dev/vboxdrv
Restart the vboxdrv service
# service vboxdrv restart
I can't remember if I had to add the device in VirtualBox under the USB
menu or not, I'm thinking not.
