Unhappy USB Flash drive issue


I cannot seem to get my USB flash drive to be recognized using Win8 virtual on a debian host....I have the Guest additional and the extensions installed.

What am I missing...

Do you have the virtual usb ports enabled in your vm?
Do you actively connected the usb device to the vm?
