Just removed my Optical drive on my iMac (late 2009) 11,1 in favor of a SSD and was trying to use remote disc from my Macbook pro, here is my set-up:


Both machines are on the same airport extreme

Macbook Pro (running 10.8.2) over Wifi
DVD or CD Sharing is "ON"


iMac (running 10.8.2) ethernet connected

I have connected to the Macbook Pro from the iMac but I can not see the remote disc in finder on my iMac.


Is there a setting or piece of software I am missing on the iMac? Since an iMac "should" have an optical drive I was wondering if a setting has been turned off because of that.

Follow the steps outlined in this macrumors post. It may or may not work, however.

Thanks benthewraith!!

It worked, I read through the entire thread and turns out you only have to run the one string with "EnableODiskBrowsing" in it.
