How do you enable "DVD or CD Sharing" remote discs on a Mac with a built-in optical drive? I don't mean offering discs (which is done via the System Preferences GUI), I mean, discovering them.

Okay, found this answer here.

In Terminal, type the following commands:

defaults write EnableODiskBrowsing -bool true
defaults write ODSSupported -bool true

..then reboot.
