    I use Parallels w/Windows 7 for certain programs that don't have a Mac option.

    If I insert a CD it ONLY mounts on the virtual Windows machine if it is running, which I do not want it to do. So at the moment in order to access the CD in OSX I have to shut down the windows completely.

    Presumably there is a way to set the machine/s to avoid having to do this.

    Any ideas?

    Can I just tell it somehow NEVER to mount a CD onto the windows machine?

    Any help appreciated :)

    in mac os, switch to the parallels program, on the menu, pick Devices - CD/DVD - disconnect.

    In the parallels settings, you can choose how you want your drive to behave by default.
