How to use USB devices like webcam, tv tuner, bluetooth, etc. in Virtualbox - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we'll talk about how we can use different devices / USB devices not supported by our operating system, exactly how to use a USB device (webcam, printer, stick bluetooth, tv tunner) in VirtualBox . I'm sure you have one room in the house or a web oldest old bluetooth stick which unfortunately can not be used on Windows 7 or Windows Vista and you have drivers only for Windows XP. Well, with the help of VirtualBox can use any USB device on any operating system on your PC even if you have installed a real operating system no longer supports these USB devices, whether they are too old or that simply do not have drivers.
All we need is VirtualBox software, a CD or an ISO image with the operating system that supports these devices and we can begin!
You will need to install VirtualBox then make some VirtualBox settings and to Install an OS in VirtualBox. If we really want to share (share some files) files between the real system and that of VirtualBox:
How is the share between the real system and the virtual box, virtual machine is Ubuntu Linux
How is share between the operating system and the virtual from the real VirtualBox
VirtualBox is a virtualization software with which you can do many things, and we can test different software is useful in many situations. We can even use our speed and 2D 3D a real video card for use in the operating system in VirtualBox and so we can play games that do not work only on a specific operating system.
Like all the above to work, you have to install Guest Additions, an ISO image that comes with VirtualBox you will need to assemble and install content. Thus the operating system of the virtual environment can communicate much better with the actual operating system to extend its functionality and capabilities of VirtualBox operating system.
That said, I invite you to watch the tutorial video to see the steps required to use a USB device in a virtual environment, or more precisely in a VirtualBox operating system.

  1. Hi, a great tutorial, I don't really use virtual boxing, so good luck with other tutorials still. Somehow Adrian you checked the sound in control panel something with noise, or with echo calibration that is heard in waves when vb, I don't like what this realtek uses for a VIA HD chipset VT1708S the microphone sounds very good when vb at realtek there is a function that means that it is for hiding the background sound, I have the impression but they didn't manage to do it, they still have to test it (RightSound - maybe that's what you wanted to get out of them, but they weren't successful).

  7. Hi Adrian,
    While a videotutorial "Tips on buying a webcam"? I want to buy a webcam and do not know what model to choose. will ask for help they do not know the essential features. Do I need a web camera with good image clarity, not to give the effect of slow motion as you move in vacuum, as we saw from someone. I have read about webcams but each gives his opinion and do not know who to believe. Thank you.

      Get a webcam Logitech C270 HD 3 MegaPixels 2048 × 1536, is very good with photos clarity, and HD video, in addition it has a microphone with RightSound technology that blocks background noise, and RightLight as well for adjusting the light as skin color. I hope you like + Motion Detection

    thank you !!!!

  10. I was unable to connect my scanner to the virtual machine running Win XP in any form. It appears in that list, but it gives me an error. This scanner is not installed on the host machine - Win 7. On the other hand I have the same type of USB Blutooth adapter, which is installed on the host machine - Win 7, but which I also can't use on the virtual machine ?!

    But the most important thing that would be more useful would be how you can use the fax modem on the host machine, the virtual machine? This is one of the most problematic situations in a virtual machine. I found absolutely nowhere solve this situation! Do you think there are any!

        If you know me so well, even one that does that and then ask salutation ?? !! If you did not I mention that I did what you recommended in the tutorial, I have not run all the way ??? !!!
        If you have solution for where we followed your instructions, you'd already offered it as an alternative IN tutorial, but it looks like you did!

        And to show you that in fact you don't do these tutorials except to be smart, you take on anyone who just BELIEVES that you don't follow the steps indicated by you, to cover the gaps you have in questions in situations that you don't you know them! As proof, you did NOT answer ANYTHING to the modem-fax problem on the host computer. Why?! Rhetorical question, obviously… because you simply do not know, because on the other hand what interests you after posting the tutorial and the appearance of comments is to find real or stubborn defects of those who really want to learn, but you feel a innate physical need to humiliate them through attitude and language!

      If the modem is PCI I do not think that it can use, I do not think virtualbox has support for that type of device, whether it was on the USB can go.

      Xantes, this is how I would do it for you with winfax (I hope it will be installed on windows 7- I tried to download it from the net but I didn't find an ok option): suppose you installed winfax in windows 7, I would go to the executable and set it from compatibility to run as if it were installed on windows xp. I mean right-click on the executable-> Properties-> compatibility-> check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for: ”and choose windows xp from the drop-down list (SP2 or SP3). I repeat, I was not able to download the program, but it still tries and I hope it works for you. Success…

    Thanks - firstFor the great difference of kindness! Fax modem is the one that came the laptop, which works as a virtual machine host PC. This being so, is there any solution for this situation? And you may be wondering and why I need your fax or modem? For the simple reason that WinFax from Symantec does not work in Win 7, but only in Win XP and Win a version of WinFax for 7 there.

  13. Nice tutorial Adrian unde where did you get that wallpaper?

  17. Welcome. A very good tutorial, however I have a small problem. I bought an EasyCap capture card Somagic SM-USB 007. I worked perfectly on XP. Now I try to use it in VirtualBox on Ubuntu, which has no driver for it. I added USB filter, I activated following the steps in the tutorial, but I can not connect any USB device.

      I'll do an article on linux.videotutorial.ro or post a video tutorial here that if the real system is Ubuntu, then you have made a small setting in the actual operating system as USB devices go in the virtual system.
      If I understand correctly, you as a real system of Ubuntu and most of virtualbox is Windows?

        Real system is Ubuntu (works perfectly on July 2009 a first operating system of my computer) and the virtual system is Windows XP (still no driver for it in Linux).

        Adrian, I awaited the article or tutorial that you said you'd post it. The same problem I have and I like Razvan, I am on Linux Mint and can not connect USB devices on Windows in Virtual Box. If you do not have time to do the tutorial or article writing, please describe me the steps to follow for solve the problem. Thank you.

  18. Welcome. I found the description set here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox/USB. I hope it will work…

      Adrian virtualbox how you set for oservat when I start windows xp virtual in the window immediately opens higher

      enter virtualbox, start the virtual machine (XP), enter the machine-switch to fullscreen and XP will display full screen and lock then xp (normal start) but leave it in fullscreen and then when you start the virtualbox xp CPC will open in fullscreen.

      Unfortunately, it does not go on virtual microphone.

      I forgot to mention that the real system is Ubuntu 11.04 and as you said above "a little more setting needs to be made in the real operating system for the USBs to work in the virtual system." exactly what setting needs to be made?

      What shown in this video tutorial goes perfectly and proceed identically for the latest version of VirtualBox!

  26. BlenderAdrian, and I expect much the article or tutorial that you said to him a post. The same problem I have and I like Razvan, I am on Linux Mint and can not connect USB devices on Windows in Virtual Box. If you do not have time to write the article or tutorial, please describe to me the steps to follow for them to solve the problem. Thank you.

    I go to all USB and serial devices, in addition to video capture cards that I picture. All you have to do is add your user group vboxusers.

      Allocate more resources to virtual systems (more RAM) and try to get out of the real system software running on when switched virtual operating system. That's about all you can do.
