    I used the remote sharing thing for a friends MBA and it worked really well. And I can't use the Bu-ray drive in my gaming PC, so is their a way to use my macs cd drive on my PC?

    what exactly are you trying to do?

    use the MBP as an external DVD drive for the PC?

    I know I can't use the DVD sharing with a PC, but I should be able to use file sharing... But my Mac doesn't show up in the network pane. Infact no computers show up in it.

    There must be some 3rd party program to do this? Because my PC just doesn't want to get along.

    If it is a data cd just dump the contents to a flash drive or something. Not sure if you have one available

    Could I upload it to the internet or something? Or use a cable to connect the two computers?
