I have just installed VMWare 10 on my Dell PC, and installed Ubuntu 14.04. Now I am having trouble mount
/cdrom. Here's what I have tried:
mkdir /mnt/cdrom mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
Actually, I do have a cd in the cdrom, and Window 8 was able to read document out of this CD. I need advice on how to resolve this error. I am a newbie here. thanks!
From your description it sounds like your drive is not connected to the VM. To connect the drive the follow the steps below.
If this is not what you're looking for, please add more details to your question.
Install VMware tools using the open-vm-tools package.
apt-get install open-vm-tools
Any other driver install is legacy officially.
I had the same problem on a CentOS 5.11 VM. The VM had the CD-ROM enabled, and also enabled on boot yet I got the "no medium found" error. The fix was to disable the CD-ROM on the VM, click "OK", let the machine reconfigure, then re-enable the CD-ROM, click "OK" again, and let the machine reconfigure again.
I suspect that the OS had "ejected" the CD at some point and this IT Crowd style solution ("Turn it off and back on again") reset that state.
