VirtualBox Slackware guest on Win7 host -- folder sharing
Here's the setup:
I have a Win7 laptop with the latest version of VirtualBox installed. It's a dual core proc with ram to spare. So, I installed Slack64-13.1 and it rocks! I'm really impressed that Slack is running at what appears to be native speed, but in virtual machine. Hardware response is normal, WIFI and LAN are both working great for my normal tasks.
So, I downloaded a few much needed patches, and new ISO image for one of my old desktop PCs.
Now, my problem is I can't connect my USB cdwriter to my virtual slackware or share folders in the Win7 install with the virtual slackware.
I read a few of tutorials on the Oracle VBox website, and several of the ones here on LQ, and none of them seem to solve my problems.
Any help be greatly appreciated, and please keep it as elementary as possible.
