Default Using 4600 to Install Software on Mini - 01-21-2009, 02:24 PM

I recieved my Dell Mini 9, external USB modem and the dvd/cd external USB drive to install the modem with.

The cd/dvd drive does not work. I'll be returning it.

In the mean time, is there a way to connect the Mini to my Dell 4600? Use the internal cd/dvd drive to install the software/modem on the Mini?

Thank you.

use the 4600 to make a .iso file of the cd (poweriso software)and mount it on the mini in a virtual drive(daemon tools or poweriso). virtual drives is a "must have" in the mini

or even more simple, just copy the software/drivers into a usb stick, most of them are just .exe files, it really don't need to be on cd to boot or something like that


sory me no spiko english

If you don't have a USB stick, but you do have a home network, you can set up your other computer's CD drive as a shared drive.
