First of all, Welcome to Computer Forums!

What I would do is that you use a PC eqquipped with a DVD burner. It burns/reads both CD/DVDs. Next, what you would do is to copy all files to the hard drive, in a seperate folder (example:To copy). Next, you insert a blank CD in it and then you burn all the files.

Another method would be copy CD, but I have not experienced a DVD copy to CD, but I think it would work.

well, is the program that is on the dvd larger than 700 mb? if it is, then you wont be able to fit it onto a cd.

I think that is the professor says he can burn it to a CD, that is out of the question, assuming if he's right.

Oh and...a portable computer is called a laptop, not a lot top

Another thing, which will be quicker, and will save a precious CD, is to open the DVD on your computer, put all the files into a folder, share the folder over the network, get on your laptop, and install it that way..

That much I think we all agree to have one..lolz

Anyways, actually, I don't know how he proceeds. Let's wait until he comes back. He could come with a bit more updating for us.
