How do you change a disk within vmware workstation from IDE to SCSI?

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?

I would backup the image using something like acronis then create a new vmware with the correct setting and then restore the data.

Hi

Have you tried to just create a new VM, and then when creating the Virtual Hard Disck, just choose to open(use) a file, and then choose the vmdk file(is the Virtual Hard Disk file) from the VM that you need to import.

Another way, is use the VM Converter, and convert the VM, from what you have, to what you need.

hope this can help

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
