Whenever I try using
openni_launch, it works normally, however, when I try viewing an image using the kinect's rgb or depth camera, or even recording a simple
bagfile with data from the kinect, I am unable to see any picture and
rosbag does not record any data, and after a few seconds of running
rosbag record, I got this error:

After searching around and trying various fixes, I figured it might be a problem with openni and started using freenect, however I encountered the same problems, I could not record any data using bagfiles or see any images from the kinect (using
Then someone asked me to use something completely unrelated,
freenect-glview, however that too gave me a black screen.
lsusb shows that all 3 parts of the kinect are connected and I've been able to control the kinect's motor through ubuntu so I know that there is at least a connection established between both.
I run ROS on Ubuntu using VirtualBox V.4.2.14 and Windows 7 with USB 2 ports
I am using ubuntu 12.04 and ROS-Groovy (all up to date)
I've had the exact same errors on my Mac OSX Lion
When I try using Rviz with the kinect, VirtualBox crashes all together
I would appreciate anyone's help on the matter.
