Use laptop DVD for netbook

Rather than purchase an external DVD can I just hook up, as needed, my laptop (internal) DVD to the netbook?

    I'm asking you!
  3. Well, short of networking the two computers I don't see how you're going to do it.
    Unless you enjoy that sort of thing, I'd buy a separate external DVD player/writer which uses a USB connector.
  4. if it's a newer laptop you would have to remove the drive, then use a sata to usb adapter to hook it up to your netbook.

    Removing the drive can be a either easy or a gaint pain depending on each laptop.

    (edit: adding extra info)

    What the above poster said would work for installing or transfering stuff from disk to your netbook. You would have to share the DVD drive on the laptop and then set a network drive on the netbook. However you couldn't do this to say reinstall the OS on the netbook.
  5. You don't say what netbook your using or laptop either..... any additional info could help.
