Is CD burning supported by Mac guests fully?
Running Mac OS High Sierra (10.12.6) in VMWare Fusion, and it looks like is my USB 2.0 CD/DVD burner is supported, as i get the "popup" of a bank disc inserted... Checking "System Information" does reveal the drive is listed... But when creating a Playlist in iTunes to "burn the songs to disc" iTunes is failing and asking me if i wish to to the default VMWare virtual.. Seems iTunes not supporting ???? System information does say CD-R... so looks like Mac guest in understanding the recording functionality, but not enough for iTunes to care. Never heard if an OS supporting, but an "default Apple app" does not. Usually in virtual environment, its the OS that either supports, or doesn't, not an app within it, Particually when its a app that came with the OS. Aside from dragging all the song from the guest, to the host just to burn.. is there a way i can get it to work in a Mac guest?
FWIW, There are a lot of things that don't work right in an MacOS guest because of the lack of 3d acceleration support.
Glad you got it to work, but it can be a bit jump to burn disks from guests in my experience. Why not just burn from the host?
And for that matter, why not run iTunes on the host as well? It's one of those apps that definitely can have issues in a guest.
because i'd have to copy files across first .... It it works from VM, why not?
I know their can be limitations, but not in this case.
But doesn't iTunes work on your Mac host? Or on a Windows computer? Or any other computer that can install it? And if your files are all on their servers in the cloud, why go through the extra steps of doing it inside of a VM?
