Adding a USB Controller

You can add a USB controller to your virtual machine. USB controllers installed inside your virtual machines allow USB devices plugged into the USB drives of your physical computer to be automatically connected to the corresponding virtual machines.

Note: A virtual machine can have only one USB controller. If you removed it for any reason, you can add it back to the configuration.

To add a USB controller to a virtual machine:

  1. Choose Configure from the Virtual Machine menu to open the Virtual Machine Configuration dialog.
  2. Click the Add button Plus Button in the bottom part of the Virtual Machine Configuration dialog to launch Add Hardware Wizard.
  3. In the Select Device window, select USB Controller and click Add Device.
