G4 download?


New member
Many years ago I purchased G4 - I recently upgraded to 7.5. My computer just died, and my new computer doesn't have a CD drive. I am unable to install my original 4... and I am unable to find a G4 download [that is legal] anywhere. Has anybody else been through this, and what do you do? All I have been able to find is the 4 -> 4.5 upgrade, and that doesn't work [as 4 installs different .dll's that are required].

Thank you,

A couple of options.

Purchase a USB DVD drive. Under 15 dollars.

Copy the CDs to usb thumb drives, rename the thumb drive the same name that is on the CD although this could be challenging with 4 CDs to install.
