Error when I clicked on Insert GuestAdditions CD Image from "Devices"

Unable to insert the virtual optical disk /Applications/ into the machine VirtualUbuntu.
Would you like to try to force insertion of this disk?
Could not mount the media/drive '/Applications/' (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED).

Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6}
IMachine {480cf695-2d8d-4256-9c7c-cce4184fa048}

I can see VBoxGuestAdditions under VirtualBox list

homeuser@ubuntu:/usr/share/virtualbox$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 14 12:46 nls
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 64647168 Apr 7 2014 VBoxGuestAdditions.iso
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2176 Apr 6 2014
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4161 Apr 7 2014

Any suggestion(s)?

I assume your host operating system is Mac OS X and you have installed Ubuntu as the guest operating system.

There is no need to mount the guest additions ISO and install from it if your guest OS is Ubuntu.

Instead, open a terminal and enter the following -

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-utils

This will install the guest additions and is more or less equivalent to installing via the ISO.
