Oracle VirtualBox, Unable to insert virtual optical disk

After installing Lubuntu in VirtuaBox, I decided to install the Guest Additions CD but received the following error.




Even after restarting the Virtual Machine, the same error appeared.

To resolve this issue shut down your virtual machine. Go to the settings page of your virtual machine and click on Storage
Under Controller: IDE right click on the VBoxGuestAdditions.iso and Remove the attachment.



Next Add a new optical drive and select Leave empty




Restart your virtual machine, and select Insert Guest Additions CD from the Devices tab. The will Guest Additions CD will then mount.
