    Copy the entire software disk to your flash drive. When complete, search the flash drive for the setup file. Double click and it should start the installation from there.

Will it work. Yes. HOWEVER....this really depends on what type of software you are attempting to install. If you are attempting to install an operating system....then you must follow a different procedure than if you are installing an application.

A little more information would be helpful.

How do i download a cd disc to a usb stick on a lap with windows 7


need more info - depends on the CD and what you want to do - ie: if a music CD, then you need to use media player, itunes or another application to "rip" the music to mp3 or other desired format to play from the USB drive. If you want to copy software or files, then use windows explorer. If you want to create a bootable installtion drive basically a copy of an installation CD, then that's entirely different and a bit more complicated.

I would like to download the user guide onto my Samsung notebook, unfortunatly I do not have a disc drive on my notebook that I can load the cd supplied with the camera


Hello,
I would recommend you to use another computer with CD rom and copy the content of the CD into a USB memory stick, then you can connect the USB memory stick to your Samsung notebook.

Another solution more expensive is to buy an external USB-CD Rom drive.

If your CD is not working, then use a computer that has a working CD and copy the files off this CD disc to a USB flash memory stick. Then insert this USB memory stick into your computer that has the faulty CD drive and install the software from this USB flash memory stick.

Don't have a place to install the cd to download software trying to install netgear G54 wireless USB Adapter to IBM Thinkpad 2662


Find another computer with a CD-drive and a USB port.
Purchase a USB memory-stick.
Connect the memory-stick to that computer, and copy all the files from the CD onto the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick onto your computer, and install from the files on the memory-stick.

Burning DVD


Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.

Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.
