assigning physical CD/DVD Rom drive

Postby edurrant » 12. Apr 2008, 05:46

Hi,

Has anyone else seen this problem ?

I can mount ISOs as drive D: to a WinXP SP2 Guest running on the OS/2 build of VB 1.5.6 but I can't assign the actual physical (S: on my host system) DVD-Rom drive - the field and pulldown list is blank and also won't allow me to simply type in S:.

Cheers/2

Ed.

Oh, I missed that - thanks.

Interestinglu\y what I can do is share the DVD drive under eComStation and map it as a network drive in the windows client and when mapped, Windows realises it is a CD and autostarts the setup program on it. I wonder if it would do that on any network drive where I put an autorun file ? Could be quite useful...

Cheers/2
