Last modified: 2015-03-12 13:08:04 EDT
Description of problem:
In virt-p2v page, USB disk display in the 'Fixed Storage' pane now, not in 'Removable Media'. But check the device value from /sys/block/sdc/removable, which display 1, means it is a removable device.
Discussed with Matt, he said
"The panes aren't well named
That's for CD-ROM and floppy drives
For devices where we want to create the device on the target, but don't want to copy its contents"
So the pane name 'Removable Media' should be change, as not all the removable media display in it.

1. Insert a USB disk into physical machine, then load virt-p2v iso

The USB disk(sdc) display in 'Fixed Storage'.
Check the /sys/block/sdc/removable=1
The second pane of virt-p2v which called 'Removable Media' should well named
