    Default Backtrack 4 on sun Virtual box Vista host usb adapter fail

    I'm completely new to this, but I've tried to search everything google, the search on this site, sun virtualbox forums, and I'm still clueless.
    I've installed bt4 in vb and every time i try to enable my usb adapter WUSBS4GC I get

    failed to atach usb device Cisco-linksys compact wireless-g USB adapter [0001] to the virtual machine Backtrack

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
    I've been going crazy.

    Why what is wrong with the OPs adapter?
    I mean srsly make your posts a bit more relevant. At least including a link to support your statement would have been nice.

    What's your host OS? (Windows, OSX) etc.

    You might be having an issue that the host is "using" the adapter and the guest (vb) can't take control of it.

    I have a different question, I installed BT4 on my hard drive - can I open/install a VM in it?
    What I'm asking is, instead of having any other OS with BT running in a virtual box, can I have it the other way around - BT with something else running in a VB?
