You can configure how your virtual machine can use a floppy device to access data on a floppy disk image file.


  1. Select Window > Virtual Machine Library.
  2. Select a virtual machine in the Virtual Machine Library window and click Settings.
  3. Click Add Device.
  4. Select the floppy device in the source list in the Other Devices panel.
  5. Select or deselect the Connected check box to connect or disconnect the floppy device.
  6. (Optional) Select Read only to make the contents of the floppy device read-only.
  7. Select Use floppy image and click Choose to browse for the floppy image file to connect the floppy device to a floppy image file.
    If you are working with a virtual machine that is configured to use a physical floppy drive, or any type of floppy device other than a floppy image file, the Use a custom unsupported setting option is selected. Fusion supports only floppy image files for use with a virtual floppy device.
