    NTi has for sometime ,and Nero 6.0, do allow you to reach into other computers through the network and burn files from them.

    Just a couple of simple things for you to check.

    Go into folder options in control panel and make sure you have SIMPLE FILE SHARING DISABLED. For a start.

    Then goto to the sharing and security option on your CD Drive. Select SHARED AS then PERMISSIONS then ADD then ADVANCED and FIND NOW hopefully this will display a list of users you can grant permission to.

    Try turning off password protected sharing, see if that helps.
