Ticket #6682 (closed defect: wontfix)
Can't burn CD/DVDs as non-root user
|Reported by:||eblaine||Owned by:|

When running a Windows XP SP3 VDI with Solaris as the host operating system, Windows does not have permissions to the DVD drive that would allow CD/DVDs to be burned when running VirtualBox as a non-root user.
Normal users will access the VDI in immutable mode and run VirtualBox with a standard LDAP account which is why the need for non-root users to have the ability to burn CD/DVDs in Windows exists. It is my understanding that Solaris checks SCSI passthrough commands from applications for root permissions so this may be an issue that cannot be resolved but if there is a workaround or fix for this issue it would be greatly appreciated.
