  • You can tell Fusions to connect the Mac DVD drive directly to the Virtual Machine, thus you will be able to run games just like you can on a real PC using a CD (usually for copy protection purposes). I have done this quite a lot with Windows XP VMs. Likewise, any connected external drive can be connected to the VM, providing it has a file system that Windows can read.
