Hi, I am trying to load a TV dongle to my notebook. No on-board DVD drive. How can I 'Insert Disk' when requested during installation please. Do I need a stand alone dvd drive or can I utilise another laptop or something/ Thanks in advance. Embarassed

The best thing to do is copy the contents of the disk to a USB drive on another PC, or download the software from the manufacturer's website to this PC. When it asks for the disk, you should have an option to browse for the files, point this to the location where you saved the drivers.
