Cannot attach medium .. medium is already associated with ..

Postby paddes » 3. Jul 2011, 22:45

Hello,

i got the following error message:
Cannot attach medium '/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso' {5a94da85-ef08-4a1a-8576-bec8aacfa013}: medium is already associated with the current state of machine uuid {52f43a23-d769-47dc-a1c5-b076ebf26c7f}!.
Fehlercode:
VBOX_E_OBJECT_IN_USE (0x80BB000C)
Komponente:
Medium
Interface:
IMedium {9edda847-1279-4b0a-9af7-9d66251ccc18}


If i click on the refresh button, nothing happens!
What can i do, to fix this problem?

I tried to install an older version of virtual box to eliminate the problem, but it used nothing!
Actually i have (re)installed the newest version 4.0.10. Still the same problem.

My Guest Operating System is Windows 7.

If you can open the VirtualBox main manager, go to the preference and media manager and remove the additions. This happens when you leave the additions.iso attached to a guest and try to update sometimes.
