Hi
I Have 2003 Server Enterprise setup as domain controller with active directories.  It has a IDE cd burner.  I have enabled imapi and it burns cds fine using windows burner just drag and drop to the drive.

I shared the burner and gave "everyone" full control.

I have an xp pro machine that is logged in to the domain.  I am logged in as an administrator on the domain.  
I mapped the shared burner to the xp machine
but i cant drag and drop the files it gives this error:
Incorrect fucntion

any ideas or is there software that allows me to do this?  I dont use nero or anything else because windows does what i need it to, and I use another program to burn isos.

thanks

There may be third-party sofware that allows this but it is not possible to do this using the built in CD burning capabilities of XP or Server 2003.

Sorry.

thanks for the response.
I just ried cdburnerxp pro but it wont find a cd burner.  So you mean i have to get up and walk across the room to burn cds?  I guess I could setup remote desktop back to it.

Any ideas on that software...?

Did a little digging and there are no ready-to-run utilities that do this readily available.

Best guess is that even if someone has written a utility to do this it is not well advertised and/or costs a chunk.

Sorry, but unless you can dig up a utility out there or write one yourself I think you'll have to walk across the room to burn CDs.....
