    I just got a MacBook, installed Fusion 2, and then put the hard drive from my old PC into a rocketfish holder, and hooked it in via USB. I am not able to see this hard drive while in virtual PC. I can see it when in the MAC side, but it is not showing up in the Virtual PC. Can anyone help?
    Thanks!

    Do you mean VMWare Fusion?

    If you are using VMWare Fusion, there's a button on the status bar that will allow you to connect the USB device to the virtual machine.

    Yes, VM Fusion

    I did just check that, and it still can't recognize it. Is there something else I need to do?
    Thanks,

    Did you try ejecting the drive in the Mac first?
