Either buy or borrow an external cd rom drive that connects via slot on laptop, there are normally plenty on ebay.

you can have a usb datalink cable to link two PCs

usb 1 version: £5.42 click here

usb 2 version: £6.46 click here

better to get usb 2 version becuase it also works for usb 1 ports

No luck there but i have been looking at external cd-rom's on ebay and they seem quite straightforward, thanks though.
