  1. Exactly how will you use the CD without a functioning CD drive, or even get any idea from us on how to do that, I can't fathom.\

    We can tell you go find a replacement drive, but really that's about it.

    Unless you somehow develop laser beams shooting from your eyes and a computer brain to sort out the info as you spin the CD on your pinkie finger :-) You'd also need a USB cable coming out of your nostril connecting to the computer to get the data there. I hear the left one would be close to USB3 speed, the right one has too much mucus and causes interference.
  2. Replace the drive and try again.

    Another option is to have an external USB like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136193&cm_re=external_usb_cd_drive-_-27-136-193-_-Product
