Hi all,

I was able to successfully install Windows 2003 Server guest on Xen (pretty painlessly, I might add) and while the CDROM was working during the installation, it now is not. I have logged in an patched Windows successfully and all appears to be right except the CDROM. On the physical server, the device is actually a DVD ROM but it worked during installation so I don't think that was the problem.

In Windows' compmgmt.msc and in the "My Computer" utility, I see a CDROM but no media in the CDROM. I have to restart the domU to get the CD ROM to detect the CD.

Is there an easier way to have a Windows domU detect the CD in the CDROM?
