    Hello

    Do not how many here use Parallels on their Mac but I have a small problem.

    I installed Parallels 7 and Windows 7, I have Windows running in Coherence mode. Now when I run Parallels I loose the use of one of my CD drives.

    Any ideas anybody, other then use Bootcamp ?

    In Parallels there should be an option to disconnect the CD/DVD drive.

    I use VMWare Fusion, and it has the same functionality, but I can't post a screenshot or link you to the proper guide, maybe have a look at the Parallels HELP menu.

    Check the attached photo. Make sure the "Disconnect" is checked.
