vmware 4.0 add hard disk

I have vmare loaded on a single disk with several vm's running on top. I have a second hard drive that I want the vm's to access data from. How can I get the vm's to see the data on the drive

Can't really do that. Yhe only way the VMms can access it is if you add it as a datastore, but im doing so you reformat the disk & lose all data currently on it.

If your server supported it, you could add a PCI device using VMDirectPath, and add the device RAW.
