Answers :

Have a friend copy the CD onto a USB flash drive. Create a folder on the flash drive and name it something like SIMS. Using Windows Explorer, drop and drag the entire CD to the folder you created.

\015\012You can then install the program from the flash drive by inserting it in your computer, selecting Start>Run>Browse and direct it to the Setup file in the SIMS folder.

\015\012 an external dvd burner they go quite inexpensive and best they can be used for any pc.OR ask a frien who may have an external dvd drive to borrow theirs. so you can still burn cd's or dvd's depending on which one you get. and leave it at home when not using the drive.
