Windows 7: XP Virtual machine and CD/DVD problem

XP Virtual machine and CD/DVD problem

Hi all
running a Virtual XP with vmware and build 7137 -- if you need to change a DVD/CD Windows doesn't refresh the data / directories unless you choose EJECT in the context menu.

Just unloading and reloading a new CD doesn't seem to work.

Can be a problem if installing a product which needs multiple CD's (such as an Oracle DB) on a VM .

you need to go into the settings and if you attached an iso to the cd/dvd you need to release it and pick that you use cd/dvd as drive ?
