In my case, my home network should be very fast, but it just takes a long time to transfer data. I think it's better if you just transfer the stuff onto the computer with the optical drive first and then burn it.11-inch MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
I'd already done all that - I can read a manual - but from that I presume I would be able to drag, drop., and hit "Burn". Files for the MacAir do not appear in Finder - Remote Disc on the mini when I drag them, leading me to wonder if it is possible.Mac Air, Mac OS X (10.5.6), IMac OSX 10.5.6 IPhone 3G
Being more explicit, I quote the article:
Note: These types of discs or activities are not supported by DVD or CD sharing:
- DVD movies.
- Audio CDs.
- Copy protected discs such as game discs.
- Install discs for an operating system such as Microsoft Windows (for use with Boot Camp), or Mac OS X.
- Burn a CD or DVD

The work around is to share the source, mount the source to the computer with the disk and burn from there. The right click menu works with the burn "item shared" to disk command. Most networks are faster than the disc burner so it is no slower than burning a disk locally. Sharing the folder removes the necessity to move the data to the machine with the disk.
