I can plug in my gamepad controller and usb probe shows me, that it is recognized. I want to umount it, so that I can use it under the Virtualbox. Where does Mac mount USB devices such as a gamepad.

Here is a picture of the usb probe output:

Thanks for your help!

You should be able to configure VB to share USB devices. Is that not working? –  Nathan Greenstein Jun 26 '11 at 14:00
Hi Nathan, I installed some updates today and now its working. But still I do not know where it is mounted under Mac (in Ubuntu I can look under /dev/input to see, if its mounted). –  Matthias Guenther Jun 26 '11 at 16:09
