    Transfer Software (Windows XP / Office XP)

    I have a CD containing installation software for a wireless card. I am trying to install it on my home PC which does not have a working CD_ROM drive.

    Is there a way I can transfer the contents of this CD from my office PC over the Internet to my home PC so that I can access the software from its hard-drive?

    If you have access to a web site, like maybe your ISP gives you one for free, you could upload all the files on the CD and then download them at home. Or (tough one) you could email all the files to yourself at home, but this might take several emails, providing your ISP doesn't have automatic blocking filters in place.

    If you have the budget for it, consider buying one of those little keychain USB memory drives. They can hold 128MB or so, which might be enough for the files you need.

    Another route would be to swap out your nonworking CD ROM drive for a new one! You should be able to pick one up for less than $20us if you look around, and by the time you figure out how to transfer the files without it you could have it installed.
