Re: USB Access in Virtual Box

Now, back to the original problem, having the USB show up in Windows, everything I have done has not allowed for the USB to show up in Windows. What am I doing wrong?

Re: USB Access in Virtual Box

Hello, I seemed to have fixed my problem(s). I took MajPooper suggestions and applied them, leaving me with a Extensions Pack. So again on suggestion I went to the Repository rather than the Software Manager and downloaded and installed that version, which went in beautifully and gave me no errors, ...

Re: USB Access in Virtual Box

Hello Major, I followed your steps and found an install that was removed, the ExtensionPacks still exist, do they need to go also, and if so how?

Re: Best backup utility for Mint 19.2?
