I have a microsoft office disk I received with my last netbook computer. Best buy installed it, since the computer has no disk drive. I replaced the computer because it crapped out, but I cannot load office without a disk drive. I don't have a USB disk drive. Can't find a place on the microsoft website where I can get a downloaded copy if I have the original disk with product key. Any suggestions.

If it's Office 2007, you can download the appropriate trial from Microsoft's website and use your key to activate it.

Office 2003 was only ever available on CD, no download was available.
Therefore if the above situation occurs with Office 2003, you need the original CD and an external USB CD drive.
