You're saying that you do not know if your current user is part of the
'vboxusers' group. Am I reading this right?

On the distros that I use everyday, setting this up is:
usermod -a -G vboxusers <your_intended_user_name_2_run_VB_under>

Without being part of the 'vboxusers' group, you cannot expect your USB
inside VirtualBox to work.
