I am using the package d/l off the Innotek website. Not the one OSE out
of the repositories. I just d/l it again and had the Gdebi installer go
through the process again. When I start the Vbox mamager the USB devices
are "active", seen, named, mfg ID'd, serial number recognized, etc. Once
I start the WinXP virtual I can't get access to them -- they are "greyed
out". There's something else going on here that I haven't yet figured
out. I'll come back it to it on Friday.
