I have read with others having this problem, but cant find an answer.
I am using VMWare Wx 10.0.3 w/ Win7 host running mint17.
I have enabled the USB Controller in VM for USB3.0 but my flash drive is not being recognized.
I can hear Windows dropping the device, but about 5 seconds later I get a little pop up in mint saying it was unsuccessful citing "Driver error."
If it matters it is the Renasses (spelling) USB3.0 chipset.
Anyone has some insight to this - I'd appreciate it.
I am a complete newb with Linux, in fact this is the longest I have used it in my life (2 days) without deleting the VM image....

The usb 3.0 issue that you're experiencing has been a problem on virtual machines for a while. It's not just vmware being buggy about it but also virtualbox had this issue as well. So it's not the guest os 's fault for causing the usb 3.0 problem. I've ran a few vms using usb 3.0 but no luck on getting it resolved.Go to the full post
