    Is there a way that I can access my cd drive while in Windows through VM Fusion? It works perfectly when I'm in OS to OS, but when I switch to Windows the cd drive is blank. Is there a setting I need to change?
    I'm trying to install office for Windows...

    Is it "connected" in your VM?

    Yes, it's connected and I see the drive but when I open it up the cd is empty.

    This is the error I'm getting now when I try to connect. Any chance idea? Thanks

    Cannot connect the virtual device ide1:0 because no corresponding device is available on the host.
