Hi.

I would try this:

- From the command prompt as root, type 'eject' and return.
- Do the install vmtools thing.
- If it doesn't auto mount, manually mount it as you did before.

Post the output from he mount command.

Cheers

Hi.

In that case, when you are initiating the "Install VMware Tools", either it is not actually presenting the device to the VM, or it is presenting it as something other than "/dev/cdrom". Not sure what the solution is. I've never seen this before.
