Ok, thx for that. Another question if I may. How can I access and use my CD rom drive while in my virtual OS? Even though I put a cd in my physcial ccd-rom and try to access it on my VM OS drive, my VM OS says there is no CD in the drive. I assume the same will happen when try to add my flash drive.

Any ideas?

thx

nevermind. figured it out.

thx

You need to go into the settings for that machine and make sure that it is set to use the cd-rom that you have installed on your computer. Then you might have to restart the vm and you should be set to go.

Cheers!
