USB drives on VMware servers

I am having an issue locating usb drives on my Vmware servers, I have three vmware servers running server 2012 r2, that are on my box using Vpshere.

I go into vpshere and right click and edit settings and attach the usb connector and the drive, but when I go to disk management or windows explorer on the server I can't find the drive.  

With out being able to find these drives I can't do my back ups of Exchange, CRM and shared files.

Any ideas?

So far this is what I have done what is in this article, but it still doesn't show up.
