USB thumb drives not seen by VMware Workstation 16

new desktop. fresh install of win 10. fresh install of VMware Workstation 16. 

 

I cannot get Workstation to ever see any USB thumb drives or external drives. The host machine sees them fine. Workstation sees all the other USB devices I have; webcams, speakers, etc... It just will not see any USB thumb drives or external drives.

Verified that USB controller is configured. I have tried USB 2.0 and 3.1. 

Verified that VMUSBArbService and VMware Workstation Server services were running.

 

Anything I a missing that would be blocking Workstation from being able to see USB drives that the host machine can see without issue?

 

Thanks
