Cannot Use CD-ROM Drive in VMware ACE Virtual Machine if Certain Settings Are Selected (1781)
I created a virtual machine in VMware ACE Manager and set the CD-ROM drive to use legacy emulation. I set the device connection policy for the drive to No one.
When I run the virtual machine in VMware ACE Manager, I can use the CD-ROM drive normally. But when I run the virtual machine in the VMware ACE application, I cannot use the CD-ROM drive.
What can I do about this problem?
This problem is seen in VMware ACE 1.0.1.
To work around the problem, you may change either or both of the two settings mentioned in the question.
- In the virtual machine settings, deselect Legacy emulation.
- In the device connection policies, select Everyone.
