MS word and CDRW's

I am working on a research paper and am using a CDRW for the first time - I am trandferring form a laptop to a desktop with a printer and when I do the desktop says that I need a converter.

Yeah - I have none of the origional word install disks left. Am I screwed?

Just use a flash drive. Much simpler.

You don't want to use floppies. They are too UNRELIABLE. I would recommend just going to Best Buy or similar and picking up a small 64mb thumb drive. All newer computers have USB ports, but not all have floppy drives anymore.

When I order Dell systems for my company, I don't order them with floppy drives. Like O'Rights said, flash drive.

From NewEgg, you can get a 128mb for around $15.

maybe you have 2 different versions of Word installed. Going from an older version to a newer version or something like that. If you don't have the disks anymore, maybe it would be easier to hook the printer to the laptop temporarily.

another storage option - internet mail. with google giving us a gig, and yahoo 250mb, who needs cdr's, or floppies for small files like word/excel docs that are irreplaceable!

Quoted for emphasis. I do this as a backup for all of my important files ever since Windows ate my college essay.

Also, if Word is saying that you need to convert the file, try saving it (on the laptop) in a different format. Under save-as, there's an option for type of file.
