Vbox Insert Guest Additions CD Image Fails

I’m trying to install VBoxGuestAdditions.iso so that I can share certain MineOS folders with the host Windows OS. However, I get this error.

Unable to insert the virtual optical disk C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxGuestAdditions.iso into the machine MineOS-Kiqs_Rocks 121.

Could not mount the media/drive ‘C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso’ (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: ConsoleWrap
Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}
Callee: IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}

In fact I can’t figure out how to mount any .iso as as a virtual DVD even by following written and video tutorials.

Can someone assist?

Are you running Virtual Box as Administrator?

I never got that addon to properly work either, so I wnt another direction:
implemented support for CIFS to mount a windows share:

Add CIFS to turnkey (debian):

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils

Connecting to a share: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-mount-cifs-windows-share/

another option is to install samba, which I’d imagine works similar to CIFS like iMelsom mentioned. A really easy way to “share” files is to use Filiza for a quick transfer.

Samba and CIFS are pretty much the same thing now.
