Usb doesn't mount on the Virtual Machine Kubuntu

Hi , I have kubuntu installed on a virtual machine. It works fine and I have used usb devices many times in it. The usb was automatically detected when I connect it .

But from a few days the usb is being detected by the virtual machine , and when I try to mount the usb it says "cannot mount the data traveller".

P.S :My usb is functioning well as it mounts well on windows 7.

Thankyou .

It might help if you told us what virtualisation software you are using - vmware, virtualbox, another?

Does the Kubuntu guest report "cannot mount the data traveller"? If so, it's almost certainly not a problem with the virtualisation of USB, but with the file system on the usb device.

Please post the exact error message - and the output of lsusb with the device connected.

Do other USB devices work?


usb detect, virtual machine
