    I am having an issue using some software I have in windows to clone a DVD because when I insert the DVD in my MBP it only shows on Mac desktop. I have my VMware window active and I can't seem to get it to recognize the disk drive. Is there a trick I am missing to get it to recognize the disk on the VMware window?

    check in the menu bar options (VIRTUAL MACHINE and then CD/DVD) that the optical disc is set to the actual drive rather than disc image.

    In VMWare, does it show as connected or disconnected?

    Dvd

    Thanks! That was it - it was showing disconnected. It is working great now!

    Same problem, but with Parallels!

    Hi,

    I think the problem you are describing is the same as the one I am having, except with Parallels. When I am in Parallels, and trying to install a DVD, it never recognizes that there is a DVD loaded. Any advice?

    Thanks.
