Thank you for your email. How can I make the DVD Device a Live CD/DVD like in VBox GUI?

/* Attach live or empty CD/DVD ROM Device */CVirtualBox vbox = vboxGlobal().virtualBox(); 
QVector <CMedium> dvds = vbox.GetHost().GetDVDDrives();  
QString dvdId(
if(dvds.count() > 0){ 
dvdId = dvds[0].GetId(); 
vmedium = vboxGlobal().findMedium(dvdId); 
medium = vmedium.medium(); 
m.AttachDevice (ctrDvdName, 1, 0, KDeviceType_DVD, medium); 
m.AttachDevice (ctrDvdName, 1, 0, KDeviceType_DVD, CMedium());
