- High Sierra v10.13.6
- VMware Fusion v11.5.1
I'm attempting to connect a flash drive (USB 3.0) to a virtual machine (Redhat). That virtual machine is a guest to my Mac host.
What I've Done So Far
The flash drive never shows up in the list of Connected USB devices.
Ignore and Mount
Seamus suggested the following in the comments:
What happens if you "Ignore", and then mount the drive from your VM?
After ignoring the connected device, there seems to be no indication that the VM sees the flash drive:
Also, I did
lsusb in the VM and got the following output:
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0e0f:000b VMware, Inc. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0e0f:0002 VMware, Inc. Virtual USB Hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
How do I connect the flash drive up to my virtual machine?
