Program to allow DVD Drive Share

Q: Program to allow DVD Drive Share

I was hoping one of you knew how I could share a DVD Drive over the internet. I know that I can set up a network and share the DVD Drive but it cannot play an actual DVD movie. How do you think I would be able to do this? When I try and run it, it opens up instead of playing and trying to play the video_ts.ifo is VERY glitchy. There must be a better way. Perhaps if you could mount a Video_TS folder that might work.

Preferred Solution: Program to allow DVD Drive Share

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So, here's the situation:

I'm currently trying to help a business set up their client-management program to work in two separate locations on two different high speed connections. On a LAN, the program essentially runs in two separate instances from the same executable. I'm not able to transfer the program itself, because the license does not carry over to the second computer; so basically, I have to run it from a shortcut to the primary PC.

My question is this: does anybody have an idea to run the program (as a shortcut or some type of server) from this location to the primary location, in a similar manner as the LAN computer using the shortcut?

I suggest they buy the proper multi-user version of the application. There are a multitude of issues trying to run a program installed on one machine over the network on another machine!

Can anyone tell me the best prson to person file sharing program
that is reasonably secure.

it is so that i can share files with a freind without having to search through hundreds of other users to find them over the internet.

i have been looking for days now and have had no luck whatsoever, Any help with this problem would be massively welcomed by myself and the freind i am trying to share the files with.

As said before the kind of program i am talking about is one where we could directly connect, or one where we could easily find each other, maybe just by typing in username ect.....
 

A:The best file share program ??????

the easiest way to do what you want is to set up an FTP Server.

FTP is secure if you make sure that you assign accounts and not set it up as anonymous!

many different FTP Programs out there! F-Serv seems to be one of the most popular!

check out Downloads.com or TUCOWS.

Basically I am looking for a high end form of Skype, but because there are only two computers needed with this, I don't need any "middle-men" and the bad latency.

I am trying to collaborate with another musician. We've seen websites where you can pay something like 10 dollars a month to have live jam sessions with each other online but it's more ideal for groups of 4 people. We both have high speed connections and I figured there's got to be a free 2-person oriented alternative we could use to directly connect to each other over the web while achieving high audio quality and low latency. Any ideas?

Adding names to the Share list only works if those Users have accounts on the same PC.

The link below shows you how to share drives, which is done through the C:>Users folder Security tab by adding check marks to the permission settings for the Everyone share.

Have Dell Dimension 8400 I fixed up with new disk and 4g ram. Put a clean Win7 32 install on the new 500g disk, and formatted the old 250 as a spare disk. Nice box!

My main machine is a Win7 64b Ultimate box - I can network to an XP SP3 box, and the Dell 8400 main disk (made a folder there and shared it). But the Dell box just won't allow any connection to that second disk or a folder in it.

All machines on same workgroup. AFAIK "HomeGroup" stuff is all turned off. I have a user by the same name on both Win7 machines... have REPEATEDLY gone over the network settings for private/public - and all seems correct.

Is there something about sharing a non-main disk? I just want a drop box on this Win32 machine as it will ultimately become a development server for MS SQL Server 2008 express.

I've currently got 3 XP machines, I like to be able to share the hard drives and map them on my other PCs to easily drop files onto them. But I've noticed since Vista, I just cant access those hard drives. I try to map it, and usually the PC shows up but nothing is there to select. At the most, my wife's Vista laptop has allowed me to access her Public folder but thats it. Its got the be one of the biggest annoyances with vista for me. We have no firewalls or virus software (i just hate it..id rather reformat than sacrifice PC performance), we use the windows built in firewall but thats it.

Most likely you just need to add Everyone to the Sharing and Security settings of the drive.

Right click the drive first and go to properties "first picture" Click on the Sharing tab, click on the Advanced button, put a check mark in the box to share this folder and hit the Apply button, then click the Permissions tab you see there, click the Add button on the new window, type in Everyone in the box then put checks for full control if required and hit the apply button again.

Once that is done open up the Security tab "second picture" click the edit button, then the Add button, type Everyone in the box and hit apply. In the last picture window below, highlight Everyone then Add the check marks for full control if required then hit the Apply button again. You should now have access to that drive from your other networked machines.

Because a link went down at the college I attend, I was unable to submit an assignment the usual way, and had to scan and save 2 pages of work as jpeg files (maybe a bad idea, but anyway...)

I sent these as attachments by e-mail to my professor, and received a copy of my e-mail in my Outlook Express inbox.

When I clicked on the attachment, I got the Nero Photoscan interface with an unreadably small copy of my 2 pages, which I could zoom in on fine, meaning, I assume, he could also.

But when I clicked the "Open" option in the upper left of the Nero window, I also could access every single folder and file on my hard drive.

There is a lot of personal information in there. Will he be able to open all of that as well, or is this only happening on my end because my Nero viewer is operating? I can't see how all that could have been transmitted by e-mail in a matter of less than a minute, so I'm hoping this did not occur.

Thanks for information.

2. Router 1 ethernet outlet is occupied with one of the laptop to which the Iomega External Hard Drive(500GB) is connected, and second one is connected wirelessly.

Since both of your PCs have Windows 7 I suggest you use the Homegroup feature. It appears to be very simple to setup, and should also be simple to add the USB drive to it.

If that fails, or is you also want to share with a non-Windows 7 OS you can use the "old fashioned" file sharing.

I have a XP machine that I can see the shared folders via network on Win 8. I cannot see the XP machine on the Win 8 via network - Win 8 says "no network" even though I am on the internet through wireless. I can map the Win 8 to shared folders on the XP. I can also use "net view" to see the XP machine from Win 8. So why won't the Win 8 network?

EDIT: I just looked and the Win8 still says I am not connected to any networks even through I can access the other machine. What is going on????

A:Can't network but can share drive

I assume that you enabled Network Discovery and also file and printer sharing for the Windows 8 machine in the Advanced Settings at the Network and Sharing Center.

You would need to make sure that the Workgroup names on both the XP and Windows 8 machines are the same.

By default the Workgroup names don't match so you would need to change the Workgroup name on at least one of those machines to match the other one.

Look in the central axis documentation and see if it supports WebDAV. WebDAV is an extension to HTTP that will allow Windows filesystem access to the content of the web server -- in this case, your NAS (network attached storage).

Then proceed as if you are opening a file with the software and just open the shared drive/folder where the dvd is located and try playing it that way. I have never tried this but it might work. I have Power DVD player and I know that I could probably do it. Hope this helps.

I want to share a drive to my roommates.

I want to be able to have full access to the drive, but my roommates to only have read access.

I tried setting up using Advanced Sharing and got so far as to share the drive so that others can see it but when I try to open the drive on another computer, I get an access denied issue.

I don't know how to fix this, can someone please help me... thanks!

roach9,
I would check to make sure that your firewall is not on. this can prevent sharing.

Hello all.

I have recently purchased a new netbook running a Windows 7 Starter 32bit operating system. As it's a netbook, you probably know it doesn't have a disk drive. So this is where the problem starts... I'm not the best with computers so excuse me if i don't understand some things, such as the registry editor, but i should be okay with most things.

So you know, i am trying to share my disk drive (DVD RW drive) from my desktop computer to my netbook over the local network. My desktop computer is running a Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit operating system. My router is a Netgear WNDR3700 if that makes any difference... I am also an administrator on both machines.

I have set up printer sharing and sharing other media files between my new netbook and my desktop computer fine without any problems. I just seem unable to share the disk drive. When i try to access it from my netbook, i am greeted with an error message saying i do not have permission and to contact my network administrator. I have tried disabling the firewall on both machines but this doesn't make a difference. The permissions on my desktop computer are set to 'full controll' for 'everybody'. I have tried several things i have read online but nothing has worked. I read somewhere that i need to use the 'Security Policy Editor' to enable permission, but if you didn't already know, Vista Home Premium doesn't have the editor. I have read some things about the registry, but i'd prefer not to mess with that unless ... Read more

I have a machine with vista and a notebook with xp home. Im trying to share a cd drive on the vista machine to the xp one. I make the cd drive shareable in vista but trying to access it gives me a permissions error in xp. I can share normal folders just fine but it wont let me access this drive. Folders have a security tab when i right click them(allowing me to set a guest to access the folder) but that tab is missing from the cd drive.
Is there any way I can get this to work? I also have all firewalls disabled.

Try turning off password protected sharing, see if that helps.

I'm sharing a drive on my network using Vista, but would like to limit some folders in the drive. How do I go about doing that?

Sharing a drive seems to be a little different than sharing a folder. I clicked on the drive that I wanted to share and went into the "Sharing" tab, and then enabled the share. Now all I want to do is limit some folder from being on the network, how do I create a permission to deny access to those folders?

Sharing a physical drive is a high risk choice; MS suggestions sharing only folders.
This automatically excludes all non-shared folders and enhances your security.

Skipped Vista, so I'm just learning to hate permissions in Win7. How do I enable the two other XP machines in the workgroup to access an entire drive on the Win7 machine? I've been able to set up access to individual folders (not even sure how I did that), but not to an entire drive -- in this case data drive D.

It's quite simple really, you will need to add each machine name as a standard account on every machine in your network. This will allow the machine names to show up on the NTFS permissions list so that you can set shares for each machine individually.

The first link shows you how to create a Standard User account, although you can also create an Admin account depending on the access you want to give that User.

The second link shows how to add Users to Groups which have predefined access.

It can take awhile for all this to sink as there are many possible variations of User access but once you get the hang of it then it's fairly simple.

User Account - Create

User Accounts - Add or Remove from ... Read more

Hey everyone,

Hoping to get some help here.

So we a share drive that is located on computer A. 5 other computers all share and access that folder. There are no restrictions on anybody. The 5th computer that I just set up is having problems though. When I connected to the network via wifi, I found the shared folder. I opened the share folder and was asked to enter the user name and password. (username and password from the computer the share drive is located on.) I typed it in, and now I can see everything on the share drive. However I am not able to create new files, open - edit - save any files, create new folders. I can't figure out what I am missing here, any advice?

One note I'll make, this new 5th computer was purchased from the UK. Everything else is from USA. Could there be any problems because of this?

Thanks.

Just a quick edit, it says that "you need permission to perform this action" when I try to create a folder or add a file in the share drive.
