#747 (USB failure with Ubuntu Gutsy) - VirtualBox

Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)

I've tried this option also. Still no luck The USB devices Now show up in Virtual Box, and the error is gone. It shows my Sprint USB device, and my Trackball, and the USB Flash drive but I'm not able to use them.

All of this trouble and about 6 hours of looking for answers. I think that I'll just have to use my Win XP machine to use Audible and get Audio books on my MP3 player. As this was the only reason that I needed the USB drive. But I'd still like to get this thing to work properly.
