    I am having problems getting my flash drive to show up in my windows virtual machine. I have used both fusion and parallels and have not been able to access my flash drive from within windows. Each time I plug in a flash drive, the virtual machine recognizes it and asks me if I want to use the flash drive in windows. I say, yes, but it doesn't show up and doesn't allow me to add files to it.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice?

    thanks.

    I was able to get my flash drive to work on my copy of Fusion. However, I am still having problems with my grandpa's flash drive on his parallels program.

    The flash drive I am trying to use is only 512mb too.

    Please help.

    Since I haven't received any replies to my question, does that mean this is not a common problem? Should I just reinstall windows and parallels and see if that fixes the problem?
