No problem, I find this quite interesting and may learn something about
VM solutions and methods as a bonus! :)

Can you copy from the command line?

The latter output is unfamiliar to me, I guess the VM setup works magic
ways! I would expect to se the same drives mapped as by-uuid. What is
mounted under /media, is that the uuid disks or is it the virtual disks
(well, it probably should be the virtual in the VM?)? 

Sorry, I am running out of ideas of how to make digikam recognise the
drive through the VM. Out of interest, what platforms are you setting
up as base and as VMs?
