NetDVD: Share your DVD drive with other computers on your network
NetDVD allows you to play DVD movies, audio CDs, games and install applications
on a netbook, laptop or desktop PC that has no CD or DVD drive; and to burn CDs/DVDs

NetDVD adds a virtual DVD drive to your Windows netbook, laptop or desktop PC, which connects
to a real CD or DVD drive on another computer connected to your network.
NetDVD used to be released as commercial software from BlueLion Software
