Specs: Windows XP
I have a wireless network consisting of 3 units, I can share my hard drives and floppy drives and printer with out a problem but after setting up the DVD/CD Drives I get an error and unable to connect. These drives work in each station just fine but when asked to share they refuse in each machine. Stumpped!!

I get the big Red "X" and it says "drive not accessible" & "The device is not ready" .... I get this if the drive is empty of has a disk in it.... but it shows the drive marked as shared ?
