Being new to VMWare I find it hard to navigate the site and books etc. because I am not sure what I am looking for.

In a nutshell I have everything installed (I think) and have a VM up and running.  I installed Windows server 2008 R2 on it and life is roses.  So I try to copy files from my laptop to the VM and cannot see the windows files?

Like I cannot see the desktop folder from the datastore browser in the VMware?

How can I copy the files from a location other than the internet to the server (2008) from a laptop, network, CD, etc?  Not ISO images, website files.

Please help this newbie get it sorted out experts.

Thanks in advance,
