With KVM all you need to do is format a partition, virtual or physical, 
with a FAT file system and then mount that partition as the D: drive in 
the virtual machine. Write your files there.

You can't have the partition mounted inside the VM and on Linux at the 
same time. If you choose to use the virtual file system you can mount it 
with loopback. If you use a physical partition you can use mount to 
mount the partition. Then copy your files on/off the FAT partition.

I have not used virtual box so I don't know how, or if you can, mount a 
second partition on you VM. YMMV
