[feature-request] GUI: Please make visible which ISO is currently inserted.

Please make visible which ISO is currently inserted in the VM.

Make it like it is done in MS Virtual PC 2004.

Recommendation: rename GUI menu from : "Devices->Unmount CD/DVD-ROM" to something more dynamic, to something, that is currently inserted, like: "Devices->Unmount I:\" or "Devices->Unmount /dev/cdrom" or "Devices->Unmount myimage.iso"

What do you think of this useful GUI feature ?

I recommend an other feature: On the tooltip of the CD/DVD and floppy drive's icon (which is blinking...) would be show the mounted image, because currently no way to get info to which image is inserted. For example: I creating an operation system install disk (Gentoo) and if i have a some install cd-s what made from me, i can't decide which version inserted of this image.

This feature would help. MS VirtualPC GUI is really good. Let's take this feature.

Already done. Either in 1.4.0 or at a later date. Hover the mouse cursor on top of the cd icon in the VM window.
