    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.
