It would probably be easier if you just networked the two together and copied all the MP3's to the desktop, unless you don't have the space available.

Neo,

I am not clear on what you are attempting to do here.  Are you wanting to BURN the MP3 files to the CD?

If this is the case the I recommend the following:

1) Copy the MP3 files to the desktop hard drive via a network share (assuming you have a network).
2) Then from the desktop, use the CD burning software.

If you really need to control the software remotely, you can look into remote control products:
VNC (Virtual Network Computing - www.realvnc.com)
Carbon Copy (http://www.altiris.com/products/carboncopy/)
PCAnywhere (http://www.symantec.com/pcanywhere/Consumer/)
or if you are running Win2K server or higher you can use a terminal client to connect to the Win2K terminal services component.

Please let me know if there are other things you need to do.

Another very simple solution in case you do not have networking hardware would be to simple you direct cable connection and connect your pc with your laptop using the com/serial ports.

simply download all the files you require to your pc and then burn them!!

If u really need to use the CD writer on ur desktop often,
u could buy an external casing for ur CD writer and u would be able to connect it to either ur laptop or destop with ease. It would become an external CD Writer then!!
