Sharing CD-ROM Drives and Removable Drives

Similar to sharing a hard drive, sharing a CD-ROM drive is one of the most common uses for sharing. Users who have not upgraded their computers to CD-ROM capability yet might occasionally need to access data and programs that are stored on a CD. In these cases, sharing a CD is the best way to solve the problem. The process of sharing a CD-ROM is the same as sharing a folder or drive. Here are some tips to help with defining a share to a CD-ROM drive:

  • Be mindful of users accessing the CD-ROM drive on your computer— Without thinking, it would be easy to remove the CD from the drive while a sharing user is accessing the drive.

  • Create Read-Only Rights to the drive— This setting keeps the user from attempting to save to the CD, in which case an annoying and difficult-to-clear error message appears.
