I'm not 100% sure if Super User is the right site to ask this question so I'm apologizing in advance if it's not.
I need to be able to attach external HDD to this Kali Linux virtual machine. I followed a tutorial on the web but even after following it step-by-step it's still not detecting the HDD attached.
Please see below:
Installed virtualbox guest extensions pack
Enabled USB 2.0 in settings
sudo usermod -aG vboxusers mark
then logged out and logged back in.
After launching the virtual machine it's still not detecting the HDD.
When I hover
over the USB icon it says
No device attached. It's VirtualBox 6.1
Can anyone please tell me what's missing ?
unmounting the HDD from host machine and running
sudo fdisk -I reveals:
The disk's capacity is 750GB so it's safe to say that Kali isn't detecting it for mounting.
Kali on VMWARE:
I tried this while the pen drive was mounted and when it wasn't mounted.
