I wached yours videos about setting up virtual box shared folder. It's exelent! Quick, easy to uderstand... You've got an A from me. :)

I don't know how to access mass storage from my virtual OS. I have Linux Mint 9 as host OS, and XP as virtual OS. If you've made a video about that I would be thankful if you send me the link.

Useful! Ideally you would provide an additional video with each successive release of Ubuntu, so that newbies are not put-off by things looking different from their own system

vids 1 & 2 for virtualbox shared folders were quite helpful. Thank you. Sometimes the simplest answers can be hard to find in the sea of information on the internet. I'm so lucky vids 1 & 2 were on the first page of the google results. Just what I needed. (I'm using OpenSuse Linux host, WinXP guest.)

At last I can now share Linux files with XP running in Virtualbox.

Thank you very much.

98. sandals birkenstock Sat, 24 Apr 2010 02:23

nice tutorial, Dai. short, informative and really gets the job done (for me at least). well done!

could you please post a tutorial about USB FLASH drive sharing in Virtualbox? I still can't get that to work properly.

old ears and English accent a bit hard to hear.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
