How to enable host USB 3.0 devices in gnome-box , "windows10 or centos7" guest, fedora 29 host

Boxes 3.30.3-stable (gnome-boxes)

I have problems trying to enable usb 3.0 acces from the guest windows 10.
For screen resolution change on ~/.config/libvort/qemu/boxes-unknown.xml (windows10 virtual machine) , the video tag to this.

  <model type='qxl' ram='65536' vram='65536' vgamem='16384' heads='1' primary='yes'/>
  <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x02' function='0x0'/>

Installed spice-guest-tools, spice WebDAV daemon, “Windows QXL-WDDM-DOD driver” from here


All is working fine, the problem is about access to the usb from the guest virtual machine, I had plug in the usb in the host machine, clicked on the menu button on gnome-boxes (top left), Properties, “Devices & Shares” tab, Switched to “On” the usb.
But always the same problem, “USB device not recognized” on the guest virtual machine, can’t get access from “centos 7 guest” too.

Here the output of the lsusb command from the host machine.
