How to share folder between host and guest in Virtual box ?

Have you made sure Guest Additions are installed in the virtual machine.
Check for the guest editions and still if you have problems then better connect the VM NIC with VirtualBox Host-Only Network and assign the range of IP address and access the host folders.
