VMware vCenter 4 Error “PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents”

This is acluy an old problem but I ran into it again wehen upgrading a vSphere 4.1 and vCenter 4 to vSphere 5. I got this error when trying to migrate a VM. I remembered that this error chould have something to do with and ISO mounted or CD-ROM drive was connectet, so I tryed to unmount it but could not get access to the edit menu. I tryed to remove the VM from the inventory and add it back in and it worked. I could mirate the VM off the host. Call “PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents” for object “propertyCollector” on vCenter Server “” failed.  

In English please…

So I have desitet to write my bolg in English manly to reach out to more readers and in that way help more. The new post will therefore be in English and I will try to re-write the existing ones too.
