The easiest way to do this is to simply create a shared folder on the computer then create a network connection to it on the Virtual Machine. http://www.avoiderrors.net/?p=10711

Hey thanks for the video, very well explained. Problem is I can see the disk i'm trying to access (host machine) in the drop down menu of the vm devices ('Add Share') and I can click 'Make Permanent' etc... and click OK but then I open my PC folders and it's not there??? What am I missing? Funnily enough I mapped OK to another drive on my host machine so just puzzled as to why I can't see this drive that I'm trying to access now. Any ideas bro? Thanks for your time, cheers Ray

Finally a good tutorial about that!!! I have newer version of VM and I had to install guest additions manually from the CD drive (after clicking "Devices/Install Guest Additions I had to open CD drive to install the iso file). Can I share any program from Windows to VM????

I know this is a year old, but for anyone with the same problem- When you click "Insert Guest Addition CD Image", go to "This PC" and you'll see a CD mounted next to your C: drive and things. Open it up and click on the .exe for your system. (32 or 64 bit) Mine were about 10MB and 16MB respectively. Then you can follow the rest of his instructions like normal.

To anyone still having this problem, G0rilla2829's solution works. I struggled for hours with this but auto-mounting the shared folder fixes it. There is now a network folder when i click "My Computer"
