Can't get Ubuntu to install on VirtualBox

I am trying to install Ubuntu on Virtual Box.
I have no problem creating a slice in Virtual box
after I install the slice, I power on the slice and go thru the install OS wizard. The only drive that shows up is the D: drive in the wizard drop down box. I downloading Ubuntu from the Ubunt website, so now I have the iso on my hard drive.

The error I get is that it cant access the iso or the cd drive, somehow it can't connect to the iso file I have installed locally.

Maybe it would be better to install Ubuntu from a CD.

Thank you for all your detailed steps.  I was sure to follow all of them.  When I went to upload the iso I got this error...see attachment

What version of VB are you running?
Check the ISO MD5 signatures available to check the ISO you have downloaded is NOT corrupted. If corrupt re-download.

see here for the signatures

Use this download to check the MD5 sig and confirm you have a good download

my EE Article here shows how to use this

HOW TO: Create an ISO CD-ROM/DVD-ROM image (*.iso), and MD5 checksum signature, for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1)
Your ISO download is either incomplete Or is compressed.
Note the stp by step guide file size f ISO is around 700mb yours is only 260mb.

Get magicdisk and see whether you can load the ISO as a virtual drive.
