CD-ROM Sharing Vista & XP

  1. I have a vista and a XP laptop and my laptop doesn't have a CD-ROM so I shared the one I have on my Vista computer.

    I can see the drive on my XP but I can access it.

    I have successfully shared other things like files.

    So can anybody help me figure this out?
