Accessing CD drive from 98

Discussion in 'Virtual PC' started by William B. Lurie, Apr 21, 2010.

  1. I run Windows 98 in VPC 2004 because, although I have
    a fully legal Windows 98, drivers for 98 are no longer
    available. I have no trouble with A-drive.

    Is there a KB article telling how to read from the CD
    drive? Thank you.

    there's nothing to write a KB about. If you have a CD in the host's CD
    drive, you simply mount the correct drive letter to the Win98 VMs CD.
    If you only have 1 optical drive on the host, you should be able to simply
    see the CD in Win98, or worst case, mount or attach it from the VM's system
    tray.
