[SOLVED] Unable to see my printer in Virtualbox
« on: March 13, 2019, 07:40:02 pm »
How do i get virtualbox to see my printer?
I can see all my USB Hard Drives but not a USB printer (Epson ET-3600)
I've got the latest version of Virtualbox and the extension pack (installed) and the guest additions iso
I'm having problems installing the guest additions as the instructions I find upon Googlin' how to install guest additions are only how to do it with a virtual ubuntu.
