Passthrough BluRay and DVD drives to Ubuntu VM

1 post in this topic Last Reply

I'm having a challenge passing my DVD and BluRay drives to my Ubuntu VM. This is all part of me creating a Automatic Ripping Machine. I have limited space so I can't build a bare metal machine for this project, and had a couple spare 5.25" slots in the server.

 

This is the .xml that I am using that gets me, what appears, to be most of the way. However the VM doesn't boot.

The drives are near the bottom and when I run "lsscsi" from the command this is the abbreviated output.

The VM will start, but doesn't boot. This is what the console looks like using the web based VNC
