    How to mount vhd file

    I have files on a vhd that I want to put in a flash drive, but VirtualBox will not recognize the flash drive so I must mount the vhd.

    here is the info of my vhd
    My vhd contains Windows XP
    it is 32GB
    It is .VHD file type

    If I can access the files safely, then please tell me how to do it.
    thanks in advance

    my os is ubuntu 12.10

    You could copy them to network storage with your vm. Then download them to anotyer machine.
    Vurtual box has a shared folders option. Allowing you to copy files straight from guest to host.
    I also thought a saw once a program in the ubuntu repository that allowed virtual hard disk files to be mounted as real hard disks (although not sure as ive never used it)

    Thanks Ceiber Boy, it worked. You need VirtualBox Guest Additions, which I already have.
