Question about Computers & Internet
You can either get an external optical drive (USB is the most common) or check if the files are available at a web site. (For hardware drivers, often it is easier to get the drivers by going to the manufacturer's site and downloading the files via your internet connection. However, you will not get any third-pary software with the download.)
Prices for external drives range from $25 up depending on the type of drive. Some use external power adapters; others are powered by the USB itself (usually takes two USB ports). Some are read-only drives; others are burners. For a variety of models, see http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=Property&Subcategory=420&Description=&Type=&N=100007595&IsNodeId=1&srchInDesc=&MinPrice=&MaxPrice= .
I hope this helps.
(there are also USB to IDE/SATA drive adapters that can make an internal optical drive into an external drive for a temporary solution if you have a spare drive.)
