Ticket #2407 (new defect)
Driver issue with CD/DVD passthrough with Windows host and windows guest
|Reported by:||kevin.shea@…||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 2.0.2||Keywords:||passthrough driver conflict|
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.
