When in a TeamViewer session, how can I access my computer's CD drive from the remote computer?

    The same way you would without teamviewer? Via Explorer? – Dave Oct 1 '13 at 8:44

    @DaveRook: I assumed he wants to access the CD drive of the source machine in the target/remote session. – Der Hochstapler Oct 1 '13 at 8:47
  • CJ7, you really need to explain what you mean then - are you trying to access files on a CD/DVD or stream some form of media from the CD/DVD? I would be amazed if you can get the later to work! – Dave Oct 1 '13 at 8:51

    @CJ7 which computer is "local" in your question? The one you're working on or the remote one? Please edit your question to be more clear. – gronostaj Oct 1 '13 at 8:56

    @gronostaj: the local computer is the computer that is not the remote computer – CJ7 Oct 1 '13 at 9:02

Let me get this right... your local computer (PC-A) is doing TeamViewer session to remote computer (PC-B), and from PC-B you wanted to access the content of CD/DVD Drive of PC-A?

(If the above assumption is correct)

There is no exact way of doing it. But there is a workaround.

If all you need is PC-B (remote PC) to have the files in the CD/DVD of PC-A (local PC), then after you open session to PC-B, use the TeamViewer File Transfer facility, and simply start transferring your files from your PC-A to PC-B.

Hope this helps.
