There are other reasons for running in a virtual WindowsXP Guest such 
converting video files for use on the iPhone/iPod touch.

I am wondering what version of VirtualBox you are running, OSE or the PUEL 
version.  If you downloaded from the Ubuntu repository, you are most likely 
running OSE which doesn't really support USB "natively".  The other thing 
that might be going on here is that on the VirtualBox Menu bar, you can 
"connect" to USB device that already plugged in (PUEL Version).
