Failed to enumerate host USB devices (VirtualBox)

Hey There
I want to make a bootable usb of windows 11 using rufus. But for that I would need a windows pc which I don't have. So what I'm thinking now is that I can install a VM and then run win 11 there and use Rufus.....
I have successfully installed Oracle Virtual Box but its showing an error :-
Failed to enumerate host USB devices.

It's saying that in VM i won't be able to use USB. How can I fix that?

Thanks in advance

I will recommend using Ventoy for making Windows bootable USB. It works in Linux too.

Guide: Install and Use Ventoy on Ubuntu [Complete Guide]

The installation and USB format method in Ventoy may be little confusing when using for the 1st time but once formatted it's all set. After that you just need to copy and paste the iso.


Thanks for replying. Sure let me try that :smiley:
