Hey Jude don't make it bad
Try a PUEL version and make it better.
The OSE version of Virtualbox doesn't support USB.
It is possible to make it work but is probably
overly complex for a new user.
THe PUEL version is free and has built in USB support.
Uninstall the OSE version through Package Manager
and install the PUEL version from here.http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
If you are using Linux Mint 7 Main Edition you want the
Ubuntu 9.04 ("Jaunty Jackalope") i386 version.
Things are more like they are now than they ever were before.
