I don't know the specifics of CD/DVD drive sharing on OS X, but my understanding is the following:
I have two Macbook Pros, one late-2007 with a damaged DVD drive and one early-2011 with a fully functioning one. When I turn on CD/DVD drive sharing on the new one, isn't the older one supposed to display the shared drive in the finder?
My problem is: I am not able to access the drive, I just can't see it in the Finder's sidebar.
Some additional info:
- Both are running 10.6.6
- Both are in the same network, subnet and are able to see each other
- I need the DVD inserted to install the software, it won't install from a mounted .iso or .dmg file
