If it is grayed out, it usually means that you do not have
permission to access the raw device. One way to fix it is to remount
the USB file system giving group r/w access to the vboxusers group.
For more finely grained access control you can add a udev rule that
sets the group to vboxusers and gives group r/w permission to
specific devices. This has been covered many times on the VirtualBox
mailing list.
