DVD-Drive not showing up on Win 3.1 in VMWare Workstation

Post by Bluscream » Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:20 pm

Hello, i recently dug up some old games on my attic and people like Michael MJD gave me motivation to play them again. But for some reason my Windows 3.10 in VMWare Workstation 15.0.0 build-10134415 will not show any disk drives.

I tried
  • Mounting the ISO as drive in Windows 10 and mounting that virtual drive with VMWare
  • Mounting the ISO as IDE or SCSI drive witin VMWare directly (with both Legacy emulation enabled/disabled)
Can someone help me with this? :(

DVD drives are not supported until Windows 98

When in doubt, make an unofficial version of Windows XP!
When not in doubt, just mod some old Android benchmarks!
When between these states, archive and preserve software!
