VirtualBox hack for accessing USB / external drives

by oneafrikan on February 19, 2009

If you want to access an external drive or device in VirtualBox, and you’re either not using USB in VirtualBox, or don’t have it working yet (as I don’t – in time tho’…), then simply create a symlink in your VirtualBox shared directory (I’m sharing my whole /home/gareth directory with VirtualBox) to your external device ( ln -s /media/BKP-320-M /home/gareth/lacie-320 ), and you should be able to access it no problem…
