    My pc is only 2 years old and it doesn’t have a cd drive


    You must know someone with a PC that has a CD drive. Copy the contents of the CD to a USB stick and use that to install the software on your computer. Once that’s done, the guy on this video does a decent (but somewhat long winded) explanation of setting up the software and capturing your video. Good luck!

    Ok thanks. If I used an imac to save the software from disc to thumbdrive would it work on my PC?

    As long as the thumbdrive is properly formatted (exFAT or NTFS, preferably done on your PC), there’s no reason why it won’t work. All you’re doing is copying files.

    Ok, yes I’ve used the thumb drive on my pc to access files there so it should be formatted ok. My last concern is that the software disc that comes with the capture device is small. It’s not a normal sized cd. Will the standard size cd port in an imac be able to accept a small disc like that?

    I’ve never used an imac but I see no reason why it won’t work. To the best of my knowledge, all CD players are designed to play all sizes of CDs.
