i have the following problem… since i updated VirtualBox to 4.3.30, using USB 2.0 will make the VM crash.

so i thought, maybe i should update the „extension pack“ responsible for giving the VM USB 2.0 support also an upgrade

VBoxManage list extpacks; # check out what packages and versions are installed

VBoxManage extpack uninstall "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack"; # uninstall the previous package

0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%
Successfully uninstalled "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack".

wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.3.30/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.3.30-101610.vbox-extpack; # download the recent extenions pack -> browse here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

VBoxManage extpack install Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.3.30-101610.vbox-extpack; # install
