I'm using VMWare Workstation 11, which is installed on Win 8.1. I have no issues with USB 2.0 drives in the guest operating systems, but for some reason, can't get 3.0 drives to work. I've tested this using Win 7 and Win 8.1 as guest operating systems.

I've done a bit of searching, but can't seem to find any reports of my exact issue. The only documentation I could find is for version 9, because it wasn't supported in that version. Looks like version 10 and beyond it should not be an issue.
