post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have setup a router and interent connection between my two rigs, and I was wondering if it would somehow be possible to access the DVD drive in my main rig from my secondary rig which doesn't have one, rep+ for an answer.

First, don't call your comptuers "rigs". Second, share the drive on your 1st comptuer using windows SAMBA.

Right click on the drive, go to sharing and security, and share the drive.
Than access it from your second computer using the following in the address bar:
\\\\computername\\sharename

thank you! And why should I not refer to my personal computing machines as rigs?
