I have several DVD drives on my Mac. I am unable to share these DVD drives with Windows Virtual Machine.
- Start Parallels Desktop and do not start the Virtual Machine.
- At the Mac menu tool bar go to Actions > Configure > Hardware tab.
- Remove all CD/DVD drives in the sidebar by clicking '-' sign.
- Re-add them to Virtual Machine Configuration one-by-one via clicking on the '+' and select CD/DVD.
- Enable the "Connected" option - CD/DVD drive will be automatically connected to the Virtual Machine on its startup.
- To emulate the virtual CD/DVD drive, you can connect one of the*physical CD/DVD drives* on your Mac or a CD/DVD image file to the virtual machine.
- Start the virtual machine and check if CD/DVD works in VM.
