I have a MacBook Air and I'd like to install CD- and DVD-based software on it without having to purchase an external CD/DVD drive.
I stumbled upon the CD & DVD sharing feature OS X supports but I've been having trouble getting it to work. I'm sharing my DVD and CD based software using a Windows 7-based PC with drive sharing enabled. But when I try to access the drive the Mac "thinks a lot" and then it says (roughly translated from danish):
Action could not be completed, because the original subject to "Warcraft III" doesn't exist
I've tried this with multiple software discs, all have similar error message results when I try to access the shared disc from my MacBook Air.
How can I make drive sharing work from my Windows PC to my MacBook Air so that I can install this software?
- MacBook Air is running OS X Lion
- Practically no HDD-space used on the MacBook Air
- The PC with the CD/DVD drive is running Windows 7
