Virtualbox OSE doesn't support USB but you can download and install Virtualbox closed source version from this link http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
and its also free. Once you install windows xp on virtual box and start it you can select your USB device from the Devices > USB Devices
from running virtual machines menu. Also note that when you select your usb device it gets disconnected from your debian and will be recognized in Windows XP inside the virtual machine. If you want to use it in debian just uncheck the USB device from Device > USB Devices
