While I'm able to share Mac folders and drives to my Windows machine, I can't seem to figure out how to share my Superdrive to Windows.   Under the sharing options in system preferences, I do have "DVD or CD sharing' selected but when I connect to the Mac machine from Windows, only the shared files and folders show up and not the DVD drive.  I'm running Mavericks 10.9 on the Mac and Windows 8.1 on the PC.
