You do not actually need the CD for a regular digi cam.
My general advice us to leave the disk in the box.
When the Data card in inserted into a card reader or the camera plugged into the USB port
The Scanner camera Wizard will come us ask what you want to do with the images.
Simplz[as professor Meercat says.
Free software such as Googles 'Picasa'
or Irfanview is all you need to get started.
More sophisticated image editing software can be purchased later

oh well i suppose i will have to invest in a card reader. it's so annoying when it worked fine before my computer had to be re-loaded. thank you

Plug camera directly into computer and switch camera on set to upload mode [read the manual- That Is on the disk]
