Re: Unable to share USB devices VM


>So for some reason i cant share USB devices connected to this system to a Virtual Machine.. Basically ill connect the device and it will never show on the share USB tab, it will show the camera, the finger print reader but not an external USB device like a flash drive or hard drive...
>So i tried VMware Workstation 8 and 9 in windows 7 64, and Ubuntu 12.04 64bit no go, I also tried Virtualbox in win 7 64 and ubuntu 12.04 and still no go..

Make sure that on linux the vmware-usbarbitrator service is running. I was having those issues when I was forgetting to start that.
