networking in order to use CD drive
on Oct 6, 2011 at 11:13:23 am

My CD drive to my laptop is broken and thanks to some help given to me on here, I've managed to get Final Cut onto it by using my desktop to create a new image from the FCP disk.

My problem is I want to put LiveType on there, but the various compatible drives I've got won't accept a new image being burned on them as they are FAT32 formatted or too small.

I just wanted to find out if 1. I can connect my laptop and my desktop together via ehtenet cable and 2. Once I do connect how do I get the desktop cd drive to talk to the laptop?

My desktop OS X is 10.5.7 and the laptop 10.5.8

Many thanks.

I think, think, that it might be in 10.5 - go to the sharing preference pane. If you see DVD sharing, you're good to go. Then you just put them on the same network (Ethernet is faster than wifi)
