VirutalBox: VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED cannot mount guest additions iso

30 Sep

After installing VirtualBox in windows, and if you use Menu > Devices > Install Guest Additions, most probably you might encounter the below errors:

“Unable to mount the CD/DVD image
Could not mount the media/drive VBoxGuestAdditions.iso (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED)”

A simple solution is to open a terminal in Ubuntu, and then type below command:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-additions-iso
