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

Please right click on the CD Drive and choose Sharing and Security ..
Go through the steps ...
Provide all the computers same Work Group but different computer names. and then You can share the CD Drive.

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.
