I am trying to import a vmware workstation image into virtual center but it is not working becasue the disk on the workstation image is IDE and it needs  to be SCSI to be imported. Does anyone know a way to change the disk type within a vmware workstation image from IDE to SCSI?

What was the version of VMware Workstation using which this VM was created ?

CT,
        Thanks for the suggestion. I was going to use Acronis to do exactly what you are saying if I couldn't figure out a way to do it within the vmdk files.

Jail,
   I will give Vmware Converter a try over the weekend. I wasn't aware I could change disk type within the application since I have only used it once. I will let you know as soon as I give it a shot.

Thanks
