vCloud ISO Images Appear with Question Marks

vCloud ISO Images Appear with Question Marks

<--This issue drove me nuts this week. Someone uploaded a bunch of ISO images with vCloud Director 5.5. The ISO's images uploaded fine but some images appeared as normal and others appeared as icons with a question mark that are unmountable on VM's. WTF?

So I tried a couple things. I noticed that the ISO images were missing the .iso file extension. I tried renaming the ISO images through vCloud. No Love!
