    Can I use optical disc drive sharing to rip cds to Mp3 on my rMBP?

    Been toying with the idea of buying a superdrive to rip my CDs. I prefer to buy CDs and them rip them myself, but don't do it that often so didn't think the lack of ODD on rMBP would be an issue.

    It then occurred to me that when the MBA came out, I remember reading that it could share ODD from nearby Macs or Windows PCs with an ODD?

    I still have my old windows laptop lying about, so would I be able to use this to rip my CDs to Mp3?

    If so, how would I go about it?

    Cheers

    An external ODD doesn't cost the $79-99 that Apple charges for their external SuperDrive.
