    bootable disk. I get this msg. I've enabled the dvd drive in the vbox
    system. Any Help is
    Appreciated,
    Ron


    Cannot open host device '/dev/sr0' for read/write access. Check the
    permissions of that device ('/bin/ls -l /dev/sr0'): Most probably you
    need to be member of the device group. Make sure that you logout/login
    after changing the group settings of the current user
    (VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).
    Unknown error creating VM (VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).


    Result Code:
    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    Component:
    Console
    Interface:
    IConsole {e3c6d4a1-a935-47ca-b16d-f9e9c496e53e}

    Have you added yourself to the cdrom group? I know that I couldn't even
    play cd's until I did that. The error message looks remarkably similar
    to what I saw before setting the correct permissions for the cdrom
    device.

    Try making an .iso of the cd
    That was my solution.

    isomaster or acetoneISO2

    By default you can install XP simple from the CD, but this suse version
    have a lot of problems with the optical drives. So, make an .iso as
    caf4926 suggested.
