    many computer shops online and brick and mortar also sell external USB optical drives if you don't want to pay the premium for the apple external optical drive. Something to think about if it's only something you need for a limited use like occasional software installation.

    well you obviously must have a serial # then. just download the trial suite from adobe site and use your serial.

    thanks for suggestion. downloaded trial version but this keeps coming up:

    error occurred- The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author.

    delete the file you downloaded, and download a new one.

    Email adobe with a screen shot of your error message. I assume you were downloading/purchased a Mac version not PC?

    Try registering you key on Adobe.com and downloading a installer.

    Or try remote disk.

    Also you can buy an external DVD drive and then return it when you're done.

    Can't always assume that's possible. I for one don't have any friends that have external optical drives. I don't think I've seen any of them with optical media for that matter!
