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

1

Select Virtual Machine > Settings to open the virtual machine Settings window.

2

Click Add Device.

3

Select the floppy device in the source list in the Other Devices panel.

4

Select or deselect the Connected checkbox to connect or disconnect the floppy device.

5

(Optional) Select Read only to make the contents of the floppy device read-only.

6

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. VMware Fusion supports only floppy image files for use with a virtual floppy device.
