To give the Guest Direct Access to the CD/DVD host drive by enabling "passthrough" mode. Depending on the host hardware, this may enable three things to work, potentially:

    *      CD/DVD writing from within the guest, if the host DVD drive is a CD/DVD writer;
    *      playing audio CDs;
    *      playing encrypted DVDs.

You'll need to change this on the Virtual Machine properties, so you'll need to get an Administrator to change the Parent Master Golden Image, or just change the properties on your "VMWare View Computer"
