Sharing a DVD player on my old iMac - Retina iMac does not display the DVD

Advertisement

I'm setting up my new retina display iMac which doesn't come with a DVD player so I set my old iMac up to share its CD/DVD player. But my new Retina/Yosemite iMac doesn't seem to be able to find the DVD player on the old iMac. Not listed at all in Finder.
Can someone help?
Thank-you.

OPen Disk Utility, highlight that DVD if it shows, click on the blue info icon, what does it report for Format & such?
