Not really programming related. Voted to close and relocate. –  Abizern Jul 16 '12 at 9:57
    
@Abizern: Why? The FAQ says: if your question generally covers ... software tools commonly used by programmers ... –  A_nto2 Jul 16 '12 at 10:16
    
Most people take that to mean the IDE, frameworks etc. But this is more about setting up your computer. And regardless of it being about running Mac in a virtual environment - actually belongs on SuperUser. –  Abizern Jul 16 '12 at 10:22
    
@Abizern: I think you're wrong, because the post deals with a software tool. ;) Anyway, you've expressed an opinion. –  A_nto2 Jul 16 '12 at 10:30
    
@A_nto2 Yes I have. But I'm not the only one to have that opinion as you can see by the number of close votes. This isn't about slamming down the questioner. This question doesn't belong here - it belongs on the sister site where it will likely get more and better answers. As part of closing this question here it will automatically be moved to that site. –  Abizern Jul 16 '12 at 10:33

I'm working on Vmware Player, actually, but I suppose the procedure would be quite close. Try launching the virtual machine and than try something like:

Virtual machine menu --> Removable devices --> (your usb device name) connect

You really should install the Vmware tools to get rid of your issues. Install these after you have started the vistual machine.

You are right When plug USB it indicates that connected but usb is not shown in Virtually installed MAC –  hiii Jul 16 '12 at 6:06
    
I have idea that I can share folder between Host and guest..But don't know how it is done? –  hiii Jul 16 '12 at 6:09
    
Did you install VmWare Tools???If yes, jou can just do copy-paste from Windows to the Vmware Mac OS. –  A_nto2 Jul 16 '12 at 6:10
    
yes i had installed. –  hiii Jul 16 '12 at 6:11
    
Let me know how it is possible I had installed VWware tool on MAC os but there is no option to copy and paste. –  hiii Jul 16 '12 at 6:14
