Re: sharing DVD drive over network

If nothing is working for you then i will advise you to check for the Firewall setting which might be blocking the connection with the network. I will advise you to disable the Firewall and security program. Now try to share the DVD ROM and see whether this is working with the issue of yours or not. Also check below given post for same issue.
