Post Re: How to add external USB CD burner to guest?
see top of this post:
Code:
~ # lsusb
Bus 02 Device 09: ID 04b4:6830 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. CY7C68300A EZ-USB AT2 USB 2.0 to ATA/ATAPI

... and also this post:
Code:
~ # lsusb -v | grep -E '\<(Bus|iProduct|bDeviceClass|bDeviceProtocol)' 2>/dev/null
Bus 02 Device 0a: ID 04b4:6830 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. CY7C68300A EZ-USB AT2 USB 2.0 to ATA/ATAPI
  bDeviceClass            0 (Defined at Interface level)
  bDeviceProtocol         0
  iProduct               78 USB2.0 Storage Device
  bDeviceClass            0 (Defined at Interface level)
  bDeviceProtocol         0
[...]

I.e. the external USB CD burner is recognized by the host.
Shall I try to mount it via ssh on the host? (some hints how to proceed would be great)

Do you have any further ideas after the lsusb information?
Also please have a look at the other details that I had provided in my recent posts.
Thank you very much.

No, as I have posted before, I collected more information, but do not know how to proceed.
I shall now rather wait for the (hopefully also free) next vSphere Hypervisor version 5, which may work better with USB CD devices, or even switch to the free XenServer.
