Driver issue with CD/DVD passthrough with Windows host and windows guest

Reported by: kevin.shea@… Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: DVD
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2 Keywords: passthrough driver conflict
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows

Description

I have a windows XP host and windows XP guest and have created a VM with a passthrough DVD writer.

When booting the VM I get the following sequence of events: 1) first boot - VBOX CDROM detected OK, everything works as expected including burning 2) second boot (after normal shutdown) - driver conflict on VBOX CDROM detected.

After uninstalling the driver and rebooting I end up back at stage 1 again, and so on. The same VM works perfectly and repeatedly when the host is linux (Ubuntu 8.04).

The specfic windows error is: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)". (nothing useful on MSDN - they helpfully suggest rebooting the PC...)

Happy for this to be a minor issue - my VM will be used primarily with the Ubuntu host and rarely used for burning disks with.

This may be related to #903, which is regarding burning pass through.
