"VMware Fusion comes with an app to do this; it's named VMDKMounter, and is located in /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/. Nathan L is correct that it requires the installation of MacFUSE (which should have automatically been installed when you installed VMware Fusion).

To use it, you should be able to right-click your virtual machine file, choose ""Open With"", and see VMDKMounter as an option. If you don't, you can navigate a Finder window to /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/ and then drag your virtual machine file onto VMDKMounter. (There are also rumors that just running VMDKMounter once will then populate the ""Open With"" submenu so that it appears there in the future.)"

You'll need to install MacFUSE, which is included on the disk. Once you do that, you should be able to mount the disk, but only when VMware is not running.
