Creation of VHD

Seems to be a bug in 3.1.4 where you try to create a new virtual hd image on a USB External HD. Only works if you use Dynamic sizing, but Fixed will return a hard drive full error. Please confirm.

I highly doubt that this is a problem with VHD. I assume that you choose a file size bigger than 2GB and your external USB hard disk is formatted with a FAT32 file system. In that case, the maximum file size is some bytes less than 2GB. If you choose the VMDK file format you can pass the Split2G option, see the VBoxManage section in the user manual.

Works for me. If this still happens please reopen and tell us the size of the virtual disk you want to create and the filesystem of the disk. Note that FAT32 has a limit of 4GB for a file.
