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


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


Click Add Device.


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


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


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


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.
