It's always good to have a boot media around so you can repair any problems on the internal installation -- like a power failure causing disk corruption. Also, you might want to show a friend how Ubuntu works on their computer. There's no real need to keep it because you can always recreate it from Windows if needed.

First make sure this is really a permission issue. If its really then locate where your USB is mounted. Then do a ls -al to check for the ownership and file permission. If you see that the permission for any file is not right then you can change it according to your need. For example i am giving the read permission for others to the file named "test". ...

It sounds like it may be a Linux driver problem, as your syslog does not report what mine does when I insert a USB disk.

I've read about this problem with multiple distributions and kernels, and on occasion I read that it had been patched.

You should be able to set up the shares in Virtual Box under "Shared Folders". If it is running, there is an icon on the status bar (if you're not running full screen), or if not, in the settings dialog. Choose "Add Share", fill in the path and name, select "permanent" and "auto mount" if you always want it mounted. In Windows, use Explorer to share it ...

Why you don't use UNetbootin. If you are using Windows just download Windows version from theirs website, if you are on Ubuntu (or Ubuntu based distribution) install it from terminal with: sudo apt-get install unetbootin I recommend to format your flash drive in FAT32 before using UNetbootin.
