In the 'USB' section for the 'Settings' on this guest, did you add a filter for the device? If not, it will never work.
If not, go in and add a filter for it, and it should at least detect.
One of the few things that I use VirtualBox for is syncing my wife's iPod via iTunes. Don't worry about the host machine loading and binding a driver for the device . . . it shouldn't affect VB's ability to latch on. It actually makes it easier to set the filter, as if the host has already detected the device, it has it listed in a "ready" drop down of filters to add.
