Hey. Do su and once root give command modprobe vboxdrv.

Then, open user manager (as root) and add your username to the group vBoxUsers.

You are done.

Have you installed the package it suggests? If not then install "virtualbox-ose-modules-generic" package first then try the above suggested group settings.

well. you can can enable the usb drive from the settings of the virtual machine. Click on settings after selecting the VM. Then, select USB from the settings and enable USB and USB 2.0 support.
