    Hey guys/girls just got a macbook air 13in and was wondering how do I set up remote disc feature? My dad has a 21.5 in iMac and for some reason it will not let me share with his optical drive, he has Lion as do I. Is this a glitch or am I missing something?

    On his computer, go into System Preferences and then Sharing. Make sure that Disk sharing is checked and then you should be good to go once you go to Remote Disk on your MBA in Finder.
