Virtualbox USB device not available to virtual machine - FC7
Im fairly new to linux but I used to be good with DOS when it was around. After following many internet guides and a lot of tweaking i finally got Fedora Core 7 Moonshine working completely (mp3 flash java printer) etc. well almost. I want to use my scanner in Linux its a Hp Scanjet G4010.
Sane doesnt support it, so I got virtualbox and thought of using it through a Win xp pro virtual machine.
I have the vm running perfectly but I cant get it to see USB devices even though I enabled the filter for my scanner on Virtualbox 1.50. Virtualbox says the scanner is unavailable. I suspect his is cause Linux is already using it or something. I dont know how to make it available to Virtualbox. I tried turning it off and on with the vm running, its still not working, I have it plugged in the front USB port. I dont think plugging it anywhere else makes a difference.
If anyone could help I`d appreciate it.
Running a Dell 2 gb ram amd 64 Dual Core 2 GHz desktop if that helps.
