VM VirtualBox, Ubuntu 9.10: USB memory stick and SD card not detected...


Hello Guys,
I have installed Ubuntu9.10 on VM VirtualBox, on my HP laptop. My laptop has several USB ports and also a SD card port. Unfortunately, I'm unable to access both, my pen-drive on the USB port and my 8GB SD card inserted in the SD Card port. Can anyone suggest me what I should do for my Ubuntu to detect both of them?

I have installed all latest updates on Ubuntu. I'm able to use my USB mouse.

Thank you
Vikram

What version of VirtualBox? The OSE version doesn't support USB. If you want it, install the non-free version.

Shouldn't that be "the not-fully-OSS, free-for-private-use version", also known as the Private Use and Evaluation Licence (PUEL) version?
