Using optical drives in a virtual machine?

Question

I have a Windows 10 VM up and running through VMM and I'd like to use it to rip/convert blue-rays. I'm trying to figure out if its even possible to have the drive show up.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

if vmm can handle usb devices to the wind10 vm it might work, having a optical drive directly in dsm does need additional drivers i guess

I tried a few things and then learned that Synology/DSM doesn't support optical drives so the VM would never be able to see it anyway :(

that about dsm is partly true, it cant handle odd's as it comes from synology but on the other hand we already compiled drivers for other stuff so it might be possible but that would only mahe sense when there would packages making use of it like mp3/dvd/br ripping (and they dont exist because there ist no odd support natively in dsm , ...)

 

but in your case its about a usb device that is just handed over to a (win10) vm, in this case the host system does not need to have a driver, the vm does need a driver

according to this

https://www.synology.com/en-global/releaseNote/Virtualization?model=RS18016xs%2B

usb passtrough is supported since VMM Version: 2.2.0-8460
