    Copy Files between Guest and Host with VMWare Player

    blondebomber Novice

      Could someone please help me with copying files between my host OS (Windows XP) and a guest OS (Ubuntu Linux).  I know this is theoretically possible with VMWare Player but I have no idea how to do it.


      I have VMWare Tools installed and its running in the guest OS, but all that seems to allow me to do is move the cursor in and out of the VM Player window.  I would like to set up a Windows folder where files could be deposited and "seen" by the guest OS in VMWare Player (possibly as a mounted drive?)  I would also like to use this method in the opposite direction to transfer files back to the host OS.  Are there some lines that need to be added to the appliance configuration file to make that happen?


      Help, pleaase.
