I just installed MacOS 10.8.3 Lion in a vmware virtual machine, and I want to install Xcode but when I get to the CD/DVD IDE settings and select the darwin.iso file to install vmTools and click "connect" nothing happens, the virtual machine doesn't detects the new "disc" that I just connected. Do you know how I can solve this? Thanks!

You can normally install VMware Tools by selecting Virtual Machine > Install VMware Tools and running the installer on the VMware Tools volume.

If there is an error about the device being in use, try ejecting other volumes (like Mac OS X Install ESD) first.

See VMware KB: Installing VMware Tools in a Mac OS Guest.
