This is also the same approach to access a USB drive to import a vmx and vmdk files (virtual machine and data storage). For this article, I will provide a step by step procedure on how to add your USB drive from one of your Windows Server (or workstation). Let's use a Windows Server 2003 for reading your USB drive.
