hyper-v Inserting disk failed

For some reason when I try to mount an iso as a dvd drive, hyper-v throws the error:
Inserting the disk failed.  The operation on computer ACME-VM-HOST-1 failed.
The iso is on a local drive under an iso folder

Try copying the ISO into the default Hyper-V folder and mounting it from there.

If it works then check the NTFS permissions on the ISO folder. Something may be up there. Try creating a new ISO2 folder and copy the ISO into it. Does it mount from there?
