    Hi Folks, I have installed Fusion and Windows XP onto a partition on my MacBook HD. Now I'm trying to install Office 2007 for XP onto this "dark-side" (but necessary) part of my new Mac. Nowhere does the cd/dvd drive show up - not on the XP side, not on the Mac OS side. Cannot find it.

    So, does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for the help.

    Did you install the VMware Tools? (Virtual Machine-->VMware Tools).

    Then when you're on the virtual computer go to Virtual Machine-->CD/DVD-->Use Physical Disk Drive
