    Device Limit Understanding

    Never mind. I figured it out. I had to create a Windows VM then modify the XML of the VM to pass the optical drive through. I am now just using a Windows 10 VM for Optical Drive access. Which is fine

    Adding to this. Would this be a viable solution. Create a windows VM and pass the Optical Drive through to it. Then all the drive to be shareable via various Windows settings. Finally connect to the drive but using the VM? I don't even know if this is possible, but it would be nice to find out.

    Device Limit Understanding

    So this brings me to another question. I just put a CD in the Optical Drive and it didn't even show up in my unraid "main" tab. Is there any way that I could access the Optical Drive from my main Windows 10 machine on my network?
  4. Hey everyone! Although I am sure this question has already been asked and answered, I haven't had the time to dig through these forums. All of my parts for my server will arrive tomorrow and I plan on assembling it all that night. My question was regarding the device limit on the basic version of the unraid OS. My System will include the following 1 - 6 TB Parity Drive 1 - 6 TB HDD in the Pool 1 - SSD Cache Drive 1 - SSD unassigned device for VM / Plex Metadata storage 1 - CD/DVD Drive and the bootable flash drive I read that the flash drive does not count toward the device number, which is awesome. But I was just wondering if the CD/DVD Drive and the unassinged device drive counts in that limit? I am assuming that they do, which is whatever. I won't be expanding really any time soon, but I would have 1 open device anyway with the current configuration. So, would I end up with 5/6, 4/6, or 3/6? I appreciate anyone that stops by and answers my question!
