iLo Vitual CD Question

When I stick a CD in my laptop and try to use it as a "virtual CD" connected to the iLo, it doesn't work. Whatever is going on on the remote server it just keeps saying "Insert CD....".

Anybody have any idea why?

Can anybody tell me how to copy existing CD's onto my hard disk in ISO format to get around this if the above doesn't work?

The mechanism iLO uses for Virtual CD is USB. Check the function of USB on the target server.
The virtual media applet has a function to create an ISO image of a physical disk.

You could also use Alex Feinman's ISO recorder to grab images of CDs to ISO files - assuming you're running XP.
