Server is XP Home, remote is XP Pro. I have successfully shared printer on server, and have shared external USB drive attached to server. Remote recognizes CD drive in "My Computer" and in Network Places. However, when I try to access the CD drive (by clicking) I get an "Access Denied" followed by something about see Administrator for permission.

There is a CD in the drive, it can be accessed by the server. The Guest account is turned on.

What next?

Create a file in notepad named FIXANON.REG with the following contents:

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : FIXANON.REG
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be FIXANON.REG.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result.

------------------- Use text after this line -------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"restrictanonymous"=dword:00000000
------------------- Use text before this line -----------------

Double click on the file and say Yes to the merge into registry question.

Reboot the computer.

I changed a registry entry per a Microsoft KB article. The article applies to Windows NT but it worked for me. It was the "AllocateCDRom" key.

All is working.

Thank you.

Wow, never even heard of that one.

I am having a similar problem ... I am able to see and access all drives from my home Netbook on Windows XP to my Home Desktop on Vista. But I am unable to connect to the CD drive.... I tried updating the "AllocateCDRom" in the registry but that did not solve it for me? Any other suggestions ....
