If you don’t have a CD/DVD burner installed in your PC but you are using a networked PC, now with Paragon Net Burner, you can easily “share” a CD/DVD/BD burner at another computer over the network and remotely make a CD/DVD/BD recordable device available for you. The software is offered as free. This solution is extremely helpful for notebook users without CD/DVD/BD burning devices on board. Sharing a HD-DVD/BD device across the network also reduces equipment costs.
