  1. The host is Mac OS X version 10.5.8 and the guest is Windows XP Pro SP3. I tried adding the usb drive as a shared folder but nothing showed up. I tried it with auto-mount but no help.

    Did you try loading the VM first and while keeping the VM in the foreground, did you then pop in the USB flash drive??

    I won't be seeing that computer until next Monday and I'll get back to you then :)

    Still same problem. I get this message when I don't have the usb stick plugged in before starting the VM.
