I've just installed High Sierra as a new install under VMware Wkstn 12.5.7 and installed VM Tools but it's not mounting any USB HDDs that I plug in. USB flash drives are mounted OK.
The USB HDD is recognised as a device (see External USB 3.0 in the attached screenshot) but Disk Utility doesn't see it. I've closed and re-opened DU a number of times.
I've tried VMware Wkstn 14.0.0 and the latest VM tools but still doesn't mount.
Has anyone had a similar issue or now what the problem may be?
