You can add a virtual USB controller to allow your virtual machine to work with the USB devices that are connected to your Mac.


Shut down or power off the virtual machine. You cannot change the setting while the virtual machine is powered on or suspended.


  1. Select Window > Virtual Machine Library.
  2. Select a virtual machine in the Virtual Machine Library window and click Settings.
  3. Under Removable Devices in the Settings window, click USB & Bluetooth.
  4. Under Advanced USB options, use the drop-down menu to select how Fusion should respond when a USB device is plugged in to your Mac.
    Note: Support for USB 3.0 SuperSpeed devices requires a suitably equipped Mac and a guest operating system that supports USB 3.0 devices.
