Description

I created a new VM, using a SATA controller for storage. However, I am unable to attach a dvddrive to the new controller:

When trying to attach a dvddrive to a storage controller,

root@oread:/vmware# VBoxManage storageattach LDAPMaster1 --storagectl SATA1 --port 1 --device 0 --type dvddrive --medium emptydrive Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.8 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved.

error: The Attachment is not supported by the Storage Controller: 'SATA1'

When attaching the drive to a IDE controller, it does work. The VirtualBox GUI is also able to attach the drive.

No, the GUI does not allow to attach a DVD drive to the SATA controller. The reason is that SATA CD/DVD support is not implemented yet for VBox 3.2. This will be fixed with the next major release.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

VBox 4.0 supports SATA CDROM devices.
