    could not get the usb.vmdk file to load into virtualbox due to permissions issue. Could you help me with this?

      Set permissions for your user as described in the guide and also reboot the system.

      $ sudo chown $USER:$USER ~/usb.vmdk
      $ sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers sk
      $ sudo usermod -a -G disk sk

      Replace “sk” with your username.
