  5. Choose the device you want to assign from the list, like: 009:002 SanDisk Extreme
  6. Click Finish
  7. Verify that the guest shows up in 'lsusb' output in the guest.
  8. Verify the device's functionality in the guest (this will be device specific)
  9. Select the device in virt-manager, and click 'Remove'.
  10. Verify the device again appears in the host, and is functional on the host.
