Question Wondering if anyone has tried this.

Just recently I bought a Pro 107 off of eBay. It didn't come with either the software CD ROM or the USB cable. I have ordered a copy of the CD and should have it by Monday.

Here's my question... I use two computers for my scanning software; a desktop with a CD/DVD drive and an Acer netbook, which doesn't have a CD/DVD drive. Does anyone know (or has anyone tried) if it's possible to copy the contents of the CD to an SD card and get it to load correctly into a netbook?

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

SSSG

You could try putting it on a thumb drive. I have an acer and picked up an external dvd/cd drive that plugs into the usb port

Default Things that make you go... Hmmmmm!

I would go with the thumb drive idea. But I would maybe try the SD Card idea cause you just never know. In theory it sounds like it should work just fine as long as the file will fit onto the SD Card. You can pick up a thumb drive just about anywhere now for almost nothing like at Staples or even down at the local Wal-Mart in Hammond!

Huh? Sometimes we must read once and then reread again before letting our fingers do the typing! Just my thoughts....

I sent my software to my laptop via yahoo mail and it worked fine, so technically you dont even need a thumb drive

Thanks for all of the replies. The software actually arrived yesterday but just haven't had a chance to get to it due to work. I have an abundance of thunb drives, so I think I'll give it a try this evening and see what happens.
