Regaining the drive
Reading N-Photo 69, I would like to offer some advice to Roy McIntyre, regarding his question on page 67 titled ‘Video Replay’. Like Roy’s, my old laptop packed up a while ago and I bought a new Acer laptop, which I am very pleased with. However, it did not have a DVD/CD drive and in the shop they just told me to download everything. This was fine but I had a rather expensive mapping system on several discs that I did not intend having to repurchase online.
My husband bought me a small ‘Lite-On Portable CD/DVD Writer’, which cost around £25. It attaches to the laptop via aUSB cable. I can now use the N-Photo discs, and it’s also great for transferring any CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs you may have onto your laptop. JoanLewis,viaemail A wonderfully simple solution to the problem, Joan. Kudos to your husband. Also, for those not wanting to get an external CD /DVD drive, you can watch all of our videos online using the links provided at the bottom of the Nikon Skills tutorials.
