Opening CD/DVD-ROM settings causes read on host drives even when not selected

Reported by: fjp Owned by:
Priority: major Component: DVD
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.4 Keywords: cd
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


This is a regression relative to version 1.5.2.

Whenever I open the CD/DVD-ROM settings dialog, I get the following line in my syslog: kernel: sr0: CDROM not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive.

This happens even though I have it set to use an ISO image, but did not happen with version 1.5.2.

IMO VirtualBox should not poll the host drives when the current setting is to use an ISO image. That should only happen when the current setting is to use a host drive, or when the setting is changed to use a host drive.

Host system is Debian GNU/Linux unstable using the Debian virtualbox-ose package.

Cheers, Frans Pop
