VMware Player  3.1.1
# Resolved Issues
* In some cases upon starting a virtual machine, the USB arbitration service might fail to start on systems that do not have a device identified as USBFDO-0 and prevent the use of USB devices in the virtual machine. The following error message appears, "Host USB device connections disabled". For this release, the USB arbitration service is updated to start whenever a USB device exists even if no devices meet this criteria.
* When a host system failure occurs during a virtual machine disk operation, attempting to power on the virtual machine or mount the virtual disk using the VMware Disk Mount utility causes the following error messages to appear, " Cannot open the disk... The specified virtual disk needs repair" and "Error reading volume information. Please select another disk file". There is no data lost during this process. VMware Player 3.1.1 fixes this issue and enables virtual machine operations to resume.
* Mapping a virtual disk with multiple partitions to a drive on the host machine and enabling write access only succeeds if you are mounting the first partition. This update enables other partitions to be successfully mounted and accessible to the host operating system.
