Not able to write to USB stick after disconnected from Guest


I've noticed a problem that is happening with workstation 9.

When I insert a memory stick in my laptop with VM running the guest grabs the USB. I can 

read / write to memory.  However when I disconnect from guest and try to write to the stick from

Ubuntu host I get the error message that the USB stick is read-only. Shutting down the VM does not help, only a reboot

and ensuring that the VM does not automatically connect new USB devices seems to be the only solution.

This problem did not happen in workstation 8.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Host: Ubuntu 12.10 64bit

Guest: Windows 7 64bit SP1
