I'm running Xubuntu 13.04 in VirtualBox on my iMac, and have discovered that devices and optical media don't show up in the VM at all. For example, USB drives and CDs mount on my Mac OS desktop but not anywhere in Xubuntu.
I've done a heap of googling about this problem, but all I found were huge technical discussions which lead nowhere, and didn't help me (a complete newbie Linux user) at all. I'd appreciate straightforward instructions, and if they involve using Terminal (which I assume they will) please be aware I have no prior knowledge of command line stuff and am learning as I go, so I'll need everything explained to me. Thanks in advance!
Update: I've fixed the USB problem - turns out USB 2.0 had to be enabled separately and that's what my USB drives are. I still can't mount CDs/DVDs though.
