You can also try a freeware Starwind V2V Converter (http://www.starwindsoftware.com/converter) utility. It will convert VHD block-by-block to VMDK which can be used in VB.

Um, somewhat pointless, since the current version of VBox can read VHDs as well as it can read VMDKs (as the last message by TerryE already said).

Not as pointless as you think, especially when on OS/2 our version of VBox is only v1.5.4.

This thread is old but comes up from the URL bar google search.

The bottom line is that VirtualBox now supports the VPC disk format natively and doesn't require any conversions. See http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch05.html#vdidetails
