Last modified: 2008-01-22 10:52:33 EST
Description of problem:
When I mistakenly entered path to a iso image in the "Partition" field while
creating new CDROM, pressing "Forward" button does not have any effect and no
error message is displayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Details > Hardware tab > Add button > Hardware type: Storage device > Forward
2. ### now I made a mistake: I want CDROM to be my iso image, but I selected
### "Normal Disk Partition" and entered path to the iso image
3. click to the Forward button
no warning, only trace-back in the command line which said me what is going on
and what should I do:
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise ValueError, _("The specified path is not a block device.")
ValueError: The specified path is not a block device.
GUI warning displayed saying "The specified path is not a block device."
This is really not to important, but it can be confusing.
