VM cannot set up python to use usb port
 
Cannot access a usb peripheral from my set-up
I am running Oracle Virtualbox on a Toshiba laptop running Microsoft Vista. I have used the Debian LiveCD iso file, which contains Python 2.6.6
I want to control a digital input/output card, which has a usb connection.
The card I can detect from the system using lsusb but I need help to set up python to use the USB ports.

You haven't mentioned what virtualization software you are using to host the debian guest.

Hi,

Oracle VM Virtualbox. I am following two articles in the Raspberry Pi "Magpi " magazine

I don't know if this will be of any help, but in Virtual Box you have to enable USB devices from the VM menu in order for the guest OS to recognize and use them in the GUI (even though you may see them listed using lsusb).

Also, make sure you installed Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack so you can have support for USB 2.0 inside VirtualBox VMs (Virtual Machines).
