I cannot access my networked dvd/cd drive

Specs: Windows XP
I am unable to access my dvd/cd drives from my netbook. I have marked the drives for "sharing", but to no avail. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

Check the configuration of all firewalls. Disable them temporarily until you find the answer.

Can you access a share, other than the cd/dvd, on the same system?

What are you sharing on the cd/dvd?

Update: you spoke of sharing and I naturally would think server access. On rereading your post it appears that you are only talking local access.

Local access has nothing to do with sharing.

If you can't access your local dvd/cdrom it could be mechanical failure. Without further details it would be impossible to diagnose.
