host harddisk don't get listet by adding image to virtual cd drive

Reported by: Albeck Owned by:

Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Windows


As seen in the picture, I created a new VM and want to add the .iso image to the virtual cd drive of the guest for installing the os. But this image is on an other partition than c:. Therefor i selected computer as seen on the screen, but the other hardrives/partitions from the host and the real cd drives of the host don't show up. In 3.2.6 it was possible to mount image from other partitions than c:, as also seen in the picture

Regards Albeck

I think it's your OS features because VB calls WinAPI open file functions.

So it works for you? Because in other registers on the left side in this case, like last used documents or own documents, files show up, but on the computer tab nothing shows up...It's XP SP3 32Bit

That works here. Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 4.0.4.
