So, I have a Windows 8 Toshiba laptop, however; quite a while ago, the CD drive fell out. (I'm unsure of how it happened, but it might have something to do with my cat. He has knocked my laptop off of my desk several times.) But I want to install something that is on a CD! Help?

Borrow another computer with a working drive and either link the two computers together (best) or transfer your information as a series of Emails (slow) .

Or spend $15 and buy a USB CD-drive.

Most products that require you to install software have online downloads for the software, google the make and model of whatever you are installing.
