How to get data exe files on dvd to Windows?
« on: August 29, 2012, 09:32:01 am »

Hey.. my Windows 7 hard drive got dropped and now a new one, but
the Windows 7 newly installed has no networking drivers at all, among
several others.

I found all the exe driver installation files I need at the HP website,
and downloaded them to a folder in my Linux hard drive.  Now I need
to get them to the Windows hard drive but Windows does not see
the files at all.

Remember, no networking (yet) on Windows, so I have to get the files
from a Linux to Windows via dvd.  How do I go about that?

Thank you for help!

Your Linux should be able to access the W7 drive and copy the files to it. Other options are to copy from Linux to a USB drive, or even burning them to a disc, then read those in W7.
