I'm trying to pull a file from my USB drive from the guest OS (ubuntu 14.04) in virtualbox (5.0.10). I tried following this question's best response:

Virtualbox not seeing any usb devices in the usb filters settings

but I don't see "vboxusers" under manage groups.

In virtualbox under settings -> USB I see the USB filter for my device but it doesn't carry over to the guest ubuntu OS. I also installed the latest virtualbox extension pack which did not solve the problem.

I just want to pull a file from the USB to ubuntu. Any help is greatly appreciated!


Did you install the VirtualBox 5.0.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack ?

If not, you can download it here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads This should give you support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices, VirtualBox RDP and PXE boot for Intel cards.
