I use this from kvm, and have never had a problem.
Run lsusb. Insert the USB drive and run lsusb again. The new line will be
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0781:5530 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer
Then using the ID from the lsusb line, add:
-usb -usbdevice host:0781:5530
into your qemu-kvm command:
qemu-kvm -usb -usbdevice host:0781:5530 -hda ~/vm/test.raw -name test -m
512 -boot c &
