Yeah, I just figured that out. I was trying to manually force an update of the USB driver when I realized I couldn't see ANY of my USB ports.
But looking at Sun's VirtualBox web site
under the features tab says it supports advanced USB devices. Plus, the only two options that can be purchased are an Enterprise license and an OEM license. It looks like it should support USB. I'll have to investigate.
