How do I install software which comes on 3.5 inch floppies onto a laptop that does no have a floppy drive?

Just curious, is it recent software or something older? – deltaray Nov 17 '10 at 3:47

Use a USB floppy drive

If you don't have a USB floppy drive, you could use another PC to transfer the software to a flash drive, CD, or use a network connection.
