If you have downloaded VirtualBox from Ubuntu repository, you have
downloaded the VirtualBox OSE (Open Source Edition),
Which has limited features.

@ Omi Azad, shared folder worked for me everytime. Only last two minor
versions of VirtualBox 1.x has some problems.

Two notes,

1. The shared folder name you are adding on VirtualBox must be the
name of a shared folder from the host OS.
2. Do not forget to enable sharing from the guest OS as well.
