So I finally got a virtual machine working on my laptop, and its running very well
. I use VirtualBox, and installed the Guest Addons. I have XP Pro SP3 (fully updated) running with the settings of a 30GB HDD and 1GB RAM, sure, it could be faster, but it works just fine (doesn't lag, etc.). I decided that I want to install Office on the virtual machine, so I plugged in my external ASUS CD/DVD drive, inserted my Office CD, and went to My Computer in the virtual machine to find that it doesn't detect the drive.
Is there a way to get the machine to detect the drive? A driver
I need to install?
Thanks for the help
