    How did you try to install from the USB drive? What file did you run?

    Did you try downloading the MAC setup wizard from Linksys, maybe from another internet connection?

You can still connect you mac to your linksys even without a driver.

your MAC have a button that say ASSIST ME on the set-up screen for the wireless connection.
ASSIST ME button will be the one going to show you how to properly connect your MAC to your router.

I'm trying to install a C01U microphone into my macbook air


1. Does one of your friends or family have a computer with a cd drive? And a USB jump drive? Have them move the files from the cd to the USB stick and insert the USB stick into the computer and install from there.
2. Buy an external cd drive from Best Buy or Frys.

Since Windows 7 ISO size is around 2.24 GB so its obvious that you will need to burn windows 7 iso on DVD and another issue is you can’t start windows 7 installation by mounting ISO file on windows XP as Windows XP upgrade to windows 7 is not allowed. In such situation installing windows 7 from USB pen drive is feasible solution.

mbrwiz /disk=X /active=X (X is Disk Number of your USB Drive)
exit
6. Now open another command window and type following command

My laptop has no cd-rom drive that is why i cant install my phone's cd driver to my computer.


Hi,

If you have a friend that has a computer you could use, copy the files from the CD to a small thumb drive. Then take it to your computer and run it from the thumb drive.

My laptop doesnt have a cd-rom, how can i install the printer?


You can try downloading just the driver of the printer and then install it on your computer.

You may also borrow an external dvd drive so you can use the cd that came with the printer.

Or if you have another computer with cd rom drive, you can insert the cd there, copy the installation files to a usb flash drive and then run the setup.exe in the computer with no cd rom drive so you can install the printer.

Unable to install card studio 2009 has dvd-rom instead of cd-rom


Hello,

Well, you have a couple of choices:

1) You can have a DVD installed in your computer. Usually around $50.
2) You can purchase a flash drive (thumb drive) of at least 4GB. Depending on the size of the files, you may need an 8GB. You can have a friend copy the entire DVD onto the flash drive. Then you can take the flash drive and copy the entire DVD from the flash drive to your computer and install the program or install directly from the flash drive. (It may auto start when you insert it into a USB port.)

If you install it from the flash drive you will probably have to insert it every time you run the program. If you copy the DVD to your hard drive you will not have to and it will run faster.

Thanks for using Fixya.

3inch cd into macbook dvd rom


Since Macs are not compatible with 3' cd's the only way it could work is if you had an external cd drive. You can even get them cheap! Here is a link to one on a website. I never used this website to purchase anything but its just to show you what you might consider looking for!

I personally hate how macs are not compatible with 3 inch cds but I hope this helps you out and good luck!

No cd rom drive


if the tablet pc has a usb port you can copy the contents of the cd to a usb flash drive, plug the flash drive into the tablet pc and run the setup file on the flash drive to install the webcam software to the tablet pc. Another option would be if the tablet pc has internet access go to the webcam manufacturers website and download the drivers and software for the webcam to you tablet pc desktop and install them that way.
