    Hi

    I have just started using Virtual Box (as a novice) and I have set it up with Guest Additions and Linux Mint 11 32bit guest on Windows 7 64 bit host.

    As a first attempt I think I have done a reasonable job since some aspects are really not novice friendly.

    The VM machine runs well with just one irritation. I have two USB 2 external hard drives (Iomega) which I have set up to show on the guest DeskTop. One of them shows up quite quickly after a few seconds, the other takes a very long time,up to two minutes.

    Can anyone explain why this should be and how to resolve it?

    In Windows the "offending" USB Drive works perfectly capably without problem as it does in the guest system. It is just the time loading onto the Desktop.

    Thanks

    Terry
