File sharing on Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a laptop which I want to install some software, however my cd-rom is broken. I have a desktop which is running vista, with two dvd r/w drives and when I was running xp on the desktop, I was able to share the dvd rom drives and use them over the network... however since i've installed vista on the computer, i am not sure how to enable sharing of the drives between the two computers, every time I go to the sharing part of the properties for the drives the button for it is grey and unclickable... is there something I need to adjust in the network settings and properties to make it available over the network, or is there some back door way to access the cd/dvd rom's from another computer????????
