iso-Image of a CD leads to an error from virtual media manager

Priority: minor Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0 Keywords: iso image error

Description (last modified by sandervl73) (diff)

After updating to 3.10 I received an error when I start up Virtual Box, caused by an older cd-image. This occurs on 2 different macs, the image is mountable under Mac OS-X 10.5.8. deleting the image from the list of CD/DVD-images in virtual media manager and adding it again, leads to the same error-message(see below). In the log-files are not any related errors, so I don't include them here.

Could not open the medium '/Users/Shared/vpc-images/cd dvd images/notcd.iso'.
VD: error VERR_VD_RAW_INVALID_HEADER opening image file '/Users/Shared/vpc-images/cd dvd images/notcd.iso' (VERR_VD_RAW_INVALID_HEADER).

I never saw such a problem here. Please try with a newer version of VirtualBox and reopen if necessary. Getting the iso image would help to debug this issue in that case.

Hallo, the error remains in every version since 3.1 and I'm keeping my installation up-to-date, that means I'm now running 3.8.

The image itself mounts under OS-X and I can start a PC with a CD burned from that image. I made this image somewhen between 2002 and 2004 with makeisofs, and it contains a multiboot-CD with freedos, W2k-installer, win98se-installer(!), Barts Pe and several floppy-images to analyze harddisks and so on.

This is no big problem, because most of the software is outdated anyway. I'm sure if I would remaster the CD - it would run.

The image has around 700MB so I don't want to mail it to you ;-).

Nevertheless there might be other images with other software that have the same problem. If you have a ftp-server or similar running, I can upload it, if you like, but you will have to send me an email to do so, because I'm not very often in this forum anymore.
