For a couple of weeks now, I have been using VL 5.9 standard installed as a guest OS in Virtualbox before I install it on my HD. So far, I have pretty much tested the basics: word processing, internet, customizing, etc and everything has worked like a charm. Today, I continue to experiment and tried playing a music CD and movie DVD. ALAS! No luck. None of the programs designed to play these media work. Since everything else has worked so well, I assume it is either because VL is running in VB or I am doing something incorrectly. If anyone has done this successfully, I would appreciate some direction. I have searched this site as well as googling but so far nothing relevant has turned up.
My system is a Dell Desktop AMD Dual Core, with 2 meg RAM, running at 2 Ghz.
