    Hey Guys.

    Just installed Paralells to get a copy of vista running on my mac...unfortunately my DVD drive wont read any DVD's. I get to a stage when installing that says to install the DVD.

    Any help? I have access to the relevant ISO i just don't know how to get it so the mac "sees" it as a DVD

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Parallels has an option to use an ISO in Setup.

    If you have a 2nd mac running Leopard, you could always share (Sharing Prefs) its optical drive over the network. You could insert the DVD on that one, share it and mount it on the 1st mac.
