    you can't drag drop from one desktop to the other

    have you tried finding the virtual PC on your LAN?

    Virtualbox will do it, or if it's Ubuntu you're interested in , you may want to try wubi.

    Try using an IP scanner to find the other PC.

    With VMWare I also used the net to transfer stuff...but I think virtualB handles the network differently & its more complicated. The traffic will go via the router and will be fairly slow.
    I meddled in the future, in all possible futures, trying to create them. Instead they created me... and I became trapped by it.

    I've tried the USB device... It works... but you will have to install the drivers that VirtualBox provides for you

    To enable USB control select the virtual machine you want to connect and then go to settings and tick "Enable USB controller" and "Enable USB 2.0 controller"

    Then run your VM and insert your flashdisk and select the USB flashdisk under the USB section from the Device menu... It will ask you if you want to install drivers (VirtualBox USB) on the Actual machine and you must click "next" then "continue anyway"... Then go and select the flashdisk under the USB section from the device menu again
