CD to SD card?

I have a laptop with no CD-ROM and no network access.

I need to install some software which is only available on CD, not downloadable via the net.

The laptop has a SD-card reader built in.

Question I have is what is the easiest way to convert the software CD (using my desktop) to an SD image so I can then load the s/w from the SD card (1gb).

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

You might just be able to copy the files from the CD and put them on the SD card. Worth a try!

Cheers Allan - worked a treat !!!

I'm not sure why I needed to ensure it was an image file, but I didnt need it to be !!!

K.I.S.S. - Lesson learned
