Well, none of my USB sticks can't mount.

I also asked about this issue today in #freebsd-vbox and one of the devs
told he never managed to get USB sticks working.

Another problem is that I was not able to get my scanner working 'cause
I need to run it along with prop. Vuescan application.

Tried everything by installing Ubuntu 12.04LTS under PC-BSD 9.2.

For the scanner/Vuescan, there is another opportunity by trying to make
it work under PC-BSD using linux emulation but linux_base-f10 is too old
and I get complaints about missing symbol ofr GLiBC-2.11/17. Iirc,
libc.so.6 covers only up to 2.9, but when I tried to provide my own libs
cp-ed from Linux (Debian), the application/ldd was complaining that
libc.so.6 is not available.

However, for the beginning, I'd like to know how did you make USB sticks
mounting with vbox running as guest OS under PC-BSD?

There is no extension pack for BSD which brings EHCI support and the
devs in #vbox confirmed that there is no plan to add it unless some
company pours lot of $$$$.


One is understood to be in full knowledge whose every endeavor 
is devoid of desire for sense gratification. He is said by sages 
to be a worker for whom the reactions of work have been burned 
up by the fire of perfect knowledge.
