It would be like any other shared network device. This is not a workable solution for gaming and watching movies, etc, for example because you would be pulling all of the info from the laptop through the network to the PC. Your best option is to spend $30 and just get a new DVD drive for your PC and install yourself. Pretty much a no-brainer to do. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
