Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card
Hi Diviola, you have no choice but to buy a CD-ROM drive. They are not as expensive as you might think. You're windows CD can format the hard drive in you're computer before installing windows. Some people can use a USB memory stick but in order to copy the windows CD software to the memory stick you'll still need a CD-ROM drive. A 2GB or 1GB memory stick will cost as much or more than a CD-ROM drive. Please click on the link to see some prices for a standard CD-ROM drive.
The link above is a CD-ROM drive & can also make CD-RW's (RW stands for re-write).
You can replace you're CD-ROM drive you're self. Just do not disconnect the cables from you're old CD-ROM drive untill you have the new drive. Connect the cables to the new drive (one at a time) as you disconnect them from the old CD-ROM drive.
Double check that the cables are tightly connected before you power up the PC. Load you're windows CD into the new CD-ROM drive & when you start you're PC up windows will start to load.
When you receive the new CD-ROM drive & if you need help connecting & running anything. You can come back here & ask questions. I'll help you through this.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
