CD Rom Files Missing

Reported by: Thailandian Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: other

Host type: other


On a Windows XP client, some CDs do not show all files when the CD is "mounted" in Virtual Box. However, if the same CD is accessed via Samba all files are shown. I am running VB on a Suse 10.2 host.

Attached is a screen snapshot that should make the problem clear.

I have listed the priority as 'minor' because sharing Suse's 'media' directory via Samba is a fairly easy work-around that also allows safer use of USB flash drives.
