    Hello Mikel,


    As far as I know CD/DVD Sharing is Read Only, you can't write to it remotely.


    Also, DVDs for backup is not very good for most things, a cheap USB Hard Drive would be far better/faster.


    You could, if need be, make Disk Images of what you want to backup on the Mini, then move the files to the other Mac for burning.
