Cannot access DVD drive

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Bob Pearce - Down Under, Apr 5, 2009.

  1. Hi all, just set up 2 XP machines (laptop to PC) and all is networked great
    but cannot get my laptop to connect to my PC DVD drive. I have connected to
    all other drives OK but a NO NO with my DVD drive. It says that the drive is
    inaccessible, I might not have permission to connect.... I have shared it of
    course but .... any suggestions? Thanks Bob

    Normally, you will get this "style" of message is there is no info to
    be read from the "media" on/in the drive. Laptop will only be able
    to use the PC DVD drive to read info off the media disks only.
