Visible indication as for which CD/DVD-ROM image is mounted

Description

In the 'CD/DVD Images' dialog box ('Devices' -> 'Mount CD/DVD-ROM' -> 'CD/DVD-ROM Image...') it is not obvious for the user which images are currently mounted, and which are not. The user must iterate over all the images listed, and figure out which one is mounted.

Hover the mouse over the small CDROM icon at the bottom right of the VM window.

That's good, but not sufficient. I have to remember the image's name when I open the dialog box. It would be much faster if my eyes would just jump to the highlighted list entry.

This is merely a usability issue. I am not claiming it not possible to do in any other way.

I just want to understand you: Why do you have to remember the image name if you want to unmount the image? To change the ISO image which is just mounted you just have to mount the new image, the old image is unmounted automatically.

There is one known bug: If the guest has locked the CDROM (e.g. Linux has mounted it) then the GUI will not inform you that unmount/remount was not successful.

No particular reason. If you think this is a minor issue, you can close this bug.

This explains some issues I've encountered. Thanks.
