I decided to give virtualbox a try. I currently use VMware fusion.

I copied my fusion disk image of Windows XP to another directory and setup virtualbox to use that hard drive. When I try to start up the virtual machine I get:

A disk read error occurred
Press CTRL+Alt+Del to restart

I thought that virtualbox was supporting vmware's disk format. Is that not the case?
