    Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device

    72c63181-a74f-495e-b191-225dbd429aa8

      I have Virtualbox 5.0 installed in Mac OS. I installed ubuntu 10.04 as a guest in Virtualbox. I have an external hard drive formated in HFS  (I disable journaling), but everytime I tried to plug this HD, Virtualbox tells me :

      Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_PDM_NO_USB_PORTS). 

      Code d'erreur :   NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) 

      Composant :   ConsoleWrap 

      Interface :   IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

       

      I tried

      sudo apt-get install hfsprogs

      sudo mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdx# /media/mntpoint

      and

      sudo fsck.hfsplus /dev/sdx#

       

      Still, the HD doesn't want to mount and Virtualbox gives me the same answer.

       

      What can I do?

       

      Regards,
