Sharing 7 DVD drive with XP machine
Im trying to create a network between two laptops; one has a DVD drive (Windows 7) and the other doesnt (Windows XP), all I want to do is make the DVD drive accessible by the Windows XP machine - youd think it would be easy? Apparently not.
I cant get the two to be on the same network, no matter what I do to the workgroup name or anything; they both have the same workgroup name but nothing is happening, both have all the sharing settings correct (or so I believe) but nothing is happening.
I dont want to share photos, documents, music or even movies - I just want the DVD drive.
Is this possible? If so how? Im getting so frustrated with it.
Thanks for any help
