I have windows 7 installed on HP elite with Phenom Quad Core processor. This was a clean install and 7 runs flawlessly, including all DVD drive functions. However, when I open the Virtual XP environment and try to use my dvd drive I get a "corrupted path or file" error.. I noticed that the drive letter of the DVD in Virtual XP is "D" - which is the same letter as what appears to be the restore partition in Vista... while the DVD drive letter in Vista is "E"....I tried changing the drive letter in XP but that did not work. My DVD drive shows up in devices, there are no apparent conflicts and the troubleshooter determines that the device is working properly..
As most of my XP software I need to install is on disc, I have no way of getting my software into XP..hoping someone else has encountered this problem...please, I am not a computer geek so go easy on me...I know just about enough to get around and get myself in trouble..lol..Thank you for any help you may provide
