I'm running Fedora core 8 on my XP machine using VMWare. Now I have a DVD which I must run on the linux window. When I insert the CD, the only CD recognized by linux is the iso file which is used in the installation of linux. The CD which I inserted is not being recognized. :confused:

Can anyone help me sort out this problem so that I can access my CD from linux ?


You need to adjust the settings of the virtual machine such that the optical drive is set to your computer's physical DVD drive, not to a file on your hard disk.

Can you please tell me how to do it ??

No. Read the VMWare documentation.

solved the problem.. thanks..
