I have decided to install Juno. As it is new I thought to try it without installing it on my computer, i will have to backup lots of data so I thought lets see it at once. I installed it in virtual box. I just notice that my pen drive is not working. But we have this old one that works fine. Can anyone tell me whats hap penning here?

I think there's nothing wrong with elementary OS, the problem is with your Virtual Box instead. I am guessing your USB (not supported one) is USB 3 and the other one (old one) is USB 2. And you may don't have virtual box extension pack installed.
What is abnormal to me is, you are supposed to get some error if you haven't installed that when you created the machine. Let me know the results.

  • I followed an article to create the machine, which instructed me to select usb 2 from the usb settings. I am going to install the extension pack and will let you know.

  • Installing extension pack did the work.
