External cd/dvd player

I need to download software from a cd disk to my Flex 3 1550 laptop. I don't have a CD drive and need to buy a  usb external one. Does any one have a suggestion to which one would work on my Flex 3?


Thank You for your help

Re: External cd/dvd player

Hi banks5co,




Nowadays, most external USB portable DVD drive are universally compatible and have plug and play feature that would work on the Flex 3. In choosing one, you may try to check for Windows version compatibility although even generic dvd normally do the job.


There is a lot of  choices aside from OEM brands to generic ones. Personally if it is just one time use, maybe it would be cheaper to have someone like a friend or computer rental shops to copy the files and save it on a flash drive if it is a challenge looking for a downloadable version online.


I hope this helps answer your query.
