    Default Virtual Box - Error: Failed to attach ...

    I have backtrack4 r2 installed in virtualbox and I am getting an error when trying to connect my new alfa USB wifi card.

    "Failed to attach the USB device to the virtual machine backtrack4.

    USB device
    with UUID {etc etc} is busy with a previous request. Please try again later."

    Anyone ever run into this problem? Any pointers on how to solve it? thanks

    make sure its installed and working on the host OS first. Then simply go to Devices>USB Devices on VirtualBox and find the right device.

    VirtualBox can be a pain with USB devices sometimes I'm finding :-/
