Virtual PC does not recognize host's CD-ROM

I have MS Virtual PC 2007 installed, running XP Pro. While in the VM, the physical CD-ROM drive in the host machine is not visible. How do I get the VM to recognize the CD-ROM? Tks

Sorry, I used the wrong terminology... I was going from memory.  See the attached image.  The CD menu, select "Use Physical Drive X:" where X: is whatever the drive letter of your CD drive is.
