    Hey,
    I'm trying to install Office 2010 on a friends PC, but they've got a CD, NOT DVD drive.
    Can I somehow (Using software or not) connect my Mac to the PC, and use my Macs DVD Drive?
    I can connect via USB, Ethernet, Networks, and maybe some other things, if you recommend them.
    Thanks,
    Joseph Duffy

    System Preferences -> sharing -> CD/DVD sharing - works over network.

    Any idea what I can do on the Windows side? My Windows isn't wireless, so I've tried:
    PC via Ethernet to MacBook
    PC and MacBook Connected to TimeCapsule via Ethernet
    Pc Connected to TimeCapsule via Ethernet, MacBook via Wireless.
    My PCs Local Area Network is via a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet.
    i'm assuming it's something little, but I just can't figure it out :/
