CD-RW Access

I have a computer that is running win98se, which currently has an internal CD-RW installed into it.

Is there any way that I can access this CD writer through a laptop with XPHE??

Thanks
Tom

Access it to do what? You could network the two machines if that is what you want to do - fairly simple and straightforward with a network crossover cable.

I need to access the drive, because it won't work on the computer, and I need to copy some disks.

What's a network crossover cable?

Thanks Tom

If it won't work on the PC, then you will not be able to use it via the laptop.

What seems to be the problem with the drive?

By the way, a network crossover cable is a cable that will allow you to network two PCs via lan cards without having a hub installed. More than two will require a hub.
